'Simple is the most sophisticated'
The Bastar tribal artisans skilled in the Dhokra technique shared this craft with artisans from Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, and China for 4,500 years. And despite being from so many countries, what’s common in the artisans of Bastar and others is their intrinsic spirit of painting their daily life.
While Dhokra art is unique to each region, there are several commonalities among Dhokra artisans around the world. They often craft day-to-day references of tribal folk working in forests, their harvest folk dances, their important events in life such as childbirth, marriage, deaths, their festivals and celebrations, their knowledge of forest herbs, and daily chores such as wood-cutting, cooking, construction of homes, etc. No wonder, this art has connoisseurs all over the world, people who value Dhokra art not only for its intrinsic starkness but also because of the several layers of traditions and historical influences that still find a prominent place in each of these handicrafts and wall arts.
