A tribal lady is swinging in this beautiful Dhokra figure. An ancient tradition of crafting of Lost wax technique is used to cast beautiful designs of lamps, boxes, tribal figures and Gods and Goddess. The motifs are mostly inspired by the folk culture. A deep sense of simplicity and satisfaction is manifest here. An excellent example of the ancient dhokra technique, the figures are created through a laborious lost wax method practised by the tribal groups of north India. In this ancient craft, a model is sculpted out 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.
