The Legend 

Since God cannot be everywhere

True story! In a remote village in the heart of Madhya Pradesh, India, a woman had three children. She took them a long while working in the forest. One fateful day, a leopard attacked them and snatched away her three-year-old son. Displaying an amazing presence of mind, she first rushed to her hut to secure her other two children. She then swiftly made her way in the direction of the leopard. Looking at the speed with which the woman was running towards it, the leopard suddenly dropped the child and ran away deep into the forest. The child was wounded and the woman too suffered injuries, but she managed to protect her son.

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.
