Ancient Crafting Technique!

Do you know about the 'Dancing Girl' bronze sculpture of Mohenjo-Daro, the great city of the Indus Valley Civilization ? The technique of making the Dhokra art is said to have originated from there, more than 4000 years ago. For thousands of years, tribes stretching across the central belt of India have been using the same wax metal casting method to produce stunning pieces of art. This piece of art has been handcrafted by the artisans from the Dhokra tribe.
