Have you seen the movie "Call Me By Your Name" (2017) directed by Luca Guadagnino, written by André Aciman? It was such a beautiful movie.
The Peach Keyring design was inspired by the iconic Peach scene from the film CMBYN. Elio (Timothée Chalamet) used the Peach to put his **** inside, that he actually endowed a new function to this innocent juicy peach. I was so impressed by the picture. What else can we put in the peach?
桃 Peach is a symbol of longevity and immortality in Chinese mythology, it's often an object being used in Chinese art and fable. There was a fable about a Chinese Duke who fell in love with a male courtier. There was a scene the courtier bit into an especially delicious peach and gave the remainder to the Duke as a gift so he could taste it as well. The phrase "分桃 Bitten peach" became a byword for homosexuality.
After all the interesting associations, I got the idea of making this cute and sexy Momo Peach which you can store a 1€ or 2€ coin for the supermarket cart or swimming pool lockers.
The Linocut art print greeting card idea came from the CMBYN movie's phone call scene. It was absolutely heartbreaking to see Elio was calling Oliver by his own name many times in a roll. My idea was letting my customer to fill his/her own name there, to call his/her own Oliver.
The keychain is made with genuine calf vegetable tanned leather, the greeting card was hand carved and printed by the designer.
