Monabat Kari Book Stand (Rehal) – (Iranian wood carving Rehal)
It was the end of March when I gave the walnut wood board to the carpenter to begin preparations for the Monabat Kari book stand (Rehal) artwork. After completing the carpentry process, I draw a beautiful design to start the construction of the wood carving book stand (Rehal). For this Monabat Rehal, I designed a sketch of a deer that has a head on the sky. I also created flowers on the border to give it a sense of beauty. In another piece of wood, I drew two circles. And I design an Iranian sketch for them to make this Monabat Kari Rehal look more attractive. Then I started the wood carving steps. Since this wood carving Rehal (Book Stand), is made up of two parts, it is easily coupled through the groove embedded in it.
