This is a remarkable piece of woodwork. A single slab of walnut is expertly cut so as to obtain those 6 interlocking pieces. They have not been separated and reglued, just separate but kept together from the initial slab. The resulting object is a book holder (Quran in this case) that can keep the book open at various heights. Truly amazing craft.
