Kinnal or Kinhal Craft (Kannada: ಕಿನ್ನಾಳ ಕಲೆ), is a traditional form of wooden craft that originates from the town of Kinhal, located in Koppal District, Karnataka. This craft has been granted Geographical Indication number 159.

Metaphor Racha has worked with the local artist Ramesh Kantappa Chitragar & tried contemporizing the design. We present a pair of handcrafted wooden "Gubbi" ಗುಬ್ಬಿ (Sparrow in English). We find the craft of resilience in the delicate flutter of sparrows' wings while you discover the cheerful chirp of everyday craft happiness through your patronage.

Body - "Ponki mara", locally available softwood
Legs - Sturdy copper wire and are detachable.

Size: Each erect bird measures 4 inches tall, 6 inches long, and 1.5 inches thick. (Check the last image) As each piece is handcrafted, no two birds will look alike.
