Wood toys of Kinnal village

The wooden toys of Kinnal village near Hampi - Dying arts...



Wood-art had several admirers, promoters and was an activity that supported several artisans. From temple idols, stories carved in wood and beautifully painted adorning the walls and ceilings of places of worship to small dolls given to kids as toys, shapes carved on wood were in great demand almost till the plastic tsunami of last century.
