The Legend 

An elephant’s royal touch

Elephants in Indian folklore have an enduring presence as chariots of gods while the Indian royal era and Mughal era bestowed elephants a more majestic status when they began to be adorned in ornate jewelry. The Mysore Dasara festival that happens annually in the city of Mysuru on the day of Vijayadashmi (the annual Indian festival) is famous for the most embellished elephants. The famous annual Dasara Procession involves the idol of Goddess Chamundeshwari, which is placed on top of a decorated elephant that carries it from the Mysore Palace to Bannimantap grounds. This is where the God of the tribal folk becomes a humble chariot of a goddess.

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.
