available at Etsy

Originally made in the 90's by rabid Zelda fans, Deeply Dapper's version of the key hook is a true labor of love! The entire image was digitally redrawn  for the clearest image and closest colors possible - no screen capture here! The image was then printed on UV Coated, full color vinyl for durability and ease in cleaning. The plaque, handmade from reclaimed, irregular and second-use wood, measures 5"x7"
