The Legend 

The Royal Spirit Animal

The horse is not just any figurine but has deeper connotations and symbolism. The dark grey or brown horse, in North Mythology, is an eight-legged horse owned by Odin god. The legends in Rig Veda consider the horse to be the chariot of the Sun God. It is believed the God of the Sun rode on a chariot of seven white horses - each horse representing the seven colors that emanate from the Sun. In another Vedic legend, the Ashva (horse) is a symbol of Prana (life energy) and indicates the control over one’s breath (Pranayama practice in Yoga), where seven horses represent seven Yogic chakras of a person’s life cycle. In Greek mythology, white horses were considered sacred animals in the Achaemenid court of King Xerxes the Great. In Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, the horse carries the world’s savior at the end of the world prophecies.

Dhokra, or Dokra - is a special process being used from the time of the Bronze Age when man had just begun inventing tools. The famous sculpture of the “Dancing Girl” that we all read about was actually a Dhokra art form that came from Mohenjo-Daro - the ancient city from the Indus Valley Civilization. The technique used for making the Dhokra art is believed to have originated from there and preserved from generations for more than 4,000 years. Dhokra art eventually came to be recognized in the modern world for its primitive simplicity, enchanting folk motifs and artistic charm. Our search for such skilled craftsmanship ended in the Bastar region of the state of Chhattisgarh, India. The tribal folk here are famed for following the ancient process of creating Dhokra crafts using wax technique that involves 12 stages of forming, shaping and solidifying the handicrafts through the touch of human hands at every level. The artisans call this process “Gadhwa” comparing it with the time of nine months of an infant’s growth in the mother’s womb.
