Collectibles made by tribal communities with the ancient metal crafts of hand wrought iron and lost-wax brass...
Dhokara is one of the earliest known methods of non-ferrous metal casting known to human civilization. It existed under different names in all the primitive cultures of the world and was used for making everything from making jewelry to vessels to images of Gods. The special characteristic of this craft is that each piece is individually molded and cast.
In India it is still practiced by artisans in West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, Bastar and Orissa.
