Four little monkeys crouch on a tree branch, sharing their infinite wisdom. Each monkey represents a part of the popular concept of see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, and do no evil. Khalid Ali presents this unique animal-inspired key chain holder masterfully crafted by hand and given an antique copper finish. Playful and symbolic, this piece is a fascinating addition to your home decor.
Khalid learned repousse metal work, known as patra, or Indo Napoleon, from his father and uncle. It is one of the most popular Indian arts and Khalid has diligently worked at it for more than 20 years. He continues to grow artistically and has taught many of his family members and other artisans the vast array of skills needed to produce this distinctive form of Indian metalwork.
Khalid Ali has received 2 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1000 and the most recent for $1800.
"My daughter loves MONKEY things"
It was really interesting the way it was packaged and everything it took a while to get here but you can tell that it actually came from whatever country it came from I forget now
