Unlocking the boss door
The Golden Carving is a type of Boss Key in Skyward Sword. This key is specifically used in Skyview Temple, the first dungeon of the game. This item's sole purpose is to unlock the door containing the game's first boss, Ghirahim. It is obtained in the room just outside of the boss door in a large treasure chest only reachable by swinging across vines after knocking them down with the Slingshot. In order to fit the key into the boss door, Link must rotate it so that the face is in the shape of a lowercase "h".
