Indian Handmade Wooden Chime/Hanging | Etikopakka/Kondapalli Toys

Located on the banks of River Varaha, the quaint village of Etikoppaka is widely renowned for its lacquer-coated wooden toys, traditionally known as Etikoppaka toys or Etikoppaka Bommalu. Creating attractive and colorful toys from wood has been a traditional art for the people of Etikoppaka, which has been practiced since before India became independent. The toys are made of wood and after the desired shape is achieved, they are colored with natural dyes derived from seeds, lacquer, bark roots and leaves. A much softer wood is used to make these toys and the art of toy-making is also known as turned wood lacquer craft.
