While Traveling to the remote villages of India, we met several tribal groups that have god gifted talent in them. They can shape some real raw products to something useful and exotic variety ranging from handcrafted decors and jewels that one can ever imagine. One of this exotic category of products is Dhokra, a metal casting technique that’s almost 4000 years old & still upbeat , in high demand at both India and international markets.
These tribals rather the first metalsmiths of ancient India make some interesting and unique artifacts like a Man Playing a Dhol ‘Mridang’ or a Woman Selling vegetables or Women Carrying Vessels, Lord Shiva’s Nandi Bull , Dokra Necklaces and some interesting Key Holders in shape of Horse, Cow, Elephant that are exquisite & extremely graceful.
While the accessibility to such decors is now easy as the same are available online. A handpicked edition of Dokra Art & Decors is available at Craftsandlooms.com. Visit this Dokra Bazaar and beautify your home this festival season.
