Handcrafted
Bell Metal figurines of men playing drums, pair of two, from
Chattisgarh



Material: Brass and Copper alloy



Weight: 297 gms



Care instructions: Store in a cool dry place, can use brass polish or soaked
tamarind to clean, dry with a soft cloth.



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
Dhokra figurines are stark, full of vitality and showcase indigenous folk
culture. 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. 

Material: Bell Meta - Brass and Copper alloy
