The beautiful elephant is given a spectacular touch with some prominent designs on it. Spectacular colour pattern marks the pachyderm.

This lovely work is crafted with the ancient dhokra technique, a laborious lost wax process practiced in the region. First, a model is sculpted of clay and dried in the sun; it is then covered with beeswax and more clay, forming a mold. The piece is cast, cleaned and again dried in the sun. Finally, it is heated in the ground for five days and polished.
