These elegant tribal musicians are given a refine and detail treatment in the traditional Dhokra method, which is being crafted with the ancient Dhokra technique, a laborious lost wax process practiced by tribal community. First, a model is sculpted of clay and dried in the sun; it is then covered with beeswax and more clay, forming a mold. The piece is cast, cleaned and again dried in the sun. Finally, it is heated in the ground for five days and polished and the final figure comes out with some exquisite carvings.
This intricate art form consists of 12 tough stages to get into its final leg which makes it one of the most valuable artifacts.
Roomantique guarantee : Our crafts last lifetime.
