Handcrafted tribal bell metal pendant from Chhattisgarh
Dhokra uses one of the earliest known methods of metal casting in history known as the lost wax technique to cast various crafts in bell metal. The craft retains a primitive simplicity and an instinctive creativity. Craftsmen and women use either clay or wax moulds. Since each mould can only be used once, each handcrafted piece is truly unique. The art form is practiced in several states like Bihar, Chattisgarh, Jharkhand, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, West Bengal and Kerala. Dhokra crafts from each region retain their own distinctive character.
