Discover the Beauty of Dokra Art

Dokra art, also known as Dhokra, is a traditional form of metal casting that originated in the tribal regions of Odisha. It is one of the oldest known methods of metal casting in the world, dating back over 4,000 years. The unique charm of Dokra art lies in its rustic and raw appeal, reflecting the simplicity and beauty of tribal life.

Each Dokra artwork is meticulously handcrafted using the lost wax technique. Skilled artisans create intricate patterns and designs by shaping beeswax into the desired form, which is then covered in clay. The clay mold is heated, causing the wax to melt and escape, leaving behind a hollow cavity. Molten metal, usually brass or bronze, is then poured into the mold, filling the cavity and taking the shape of the original wax pattern. Once cooled, the clay is broken away, revealing the stunning metal artwork.
