There is no key holder in the world like this Monabat Kari key holder!!! (For more information, please read the product description)
To make this Monabat Kari key holder, I first searched for and tried to find the wood I wanted, because it is not possible to make a Monabat Gereh key holder without searching in nature. One of the unique features of the Iranian wood carving artwork created in this way is due to the natural knots in the wood. If you explore all of nature, you won’t find anything like this Iranian wood carving key holder. Whenever I find such a wood like this, I put it in the corner for hours and days and look deep into it to find shape from within its knots. When I look closely at some woods, I find some beautiful and attractive shapes in their veins. Like the day I got hold of this pear wood, and I saw its fascinating knot.

Monabat Gereh key holder
I looked at it from different angles. It is interesting to tell you that within this wood, I saw the image of two animals that stuck together. One animal running fast, and the other animal walking slowly, and both were waiting for someone to come and separate them. At first glance, the penguin’s shape glowed in front of my eyes. The beak and his eyes were very lovely and somewhat natural. To find the other animal, I rotated the wood 5 minutes clockwise until I saw a rabbit. Then, I started carving this wood by using special tools. Then I made a sloping box. On the box, I made a beautiful design and started carving, and I made other designs in the envelope. And I turned this box into a wooden key holder. To make it more beautiful, I covered the inside and back of the box with leather.
