The beautiful dhokra artifact reveals the simple life of the tribal people. The inhabitants of the jungle are going out to forest in numbers to collect wood and fruits. The male-female groups are holding axe and other essential things on their head and back. Meaning "oldest," dhokra is a crafting tradition dating as far back as 2000 B.C. Dhokra art is largely associated with the tribal groups of northern India, including Vindhyas and the Eastern Ghats, Bihar and its surroundings, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal. Myriad images are cast in the dhokra tradition as artisans preserve their millenary culture, custom and belief through the wondrous pieces they create.
