Along with his brother, the golden-sworded Chrysaor, Pegasus sprang forth most miraculously from his pregnant mother’s neck after Perseus had beheaded her. Pegasus’ name originates in the Greek word for springs, peace since he was supposedly born near the springs of the Ocean. But he was also associated with waters due to an extraordinary trait of his he had inherited from his father.

Despite a clear Greek inspiration, the Pegasus has a raw feel to it with minute carvings on its wings and feet. Pair it with an Arabian hookah beside it or a metal tea kettle to replicate a royal feeling throughout your interiors.

The Legend 

Soar like the Pegasus

The world’s well-known legacy from Greek mythology has lived on and influenced the art and design fields of all cultures. Pegasus was an immortal winged horse, one of the two children of Poseidon and Medusa. Along with his brother, the golden-sworded Chrysaor, Pegasus sprang forth most miraculously from his pregnant mother’s neck after Perseus had beheaded her. Pegasus’ name originates from the Greek word pegae for springs since he was supposedly born near the springs of the Ocean. But he was also associated with waters due to an extraordinary trait that he had inherited from his father. In many cultures, the Horse is considered the emblem of the cosmic cycle, life, desire, death, destruction, and the energy of the divine Sun. In the Vedic tradition, horses symbolize speed, beauty, purity, the expansive power of Brahman, freedom, grace, and strength.

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.
