Description

Dhokra metal craft brass Dancing Tribals - Hanging Decor

This product is made using the traditional dhokra metal craft. The tribal figurines look extremely pretty hanging off a corbel or any space that will allow it some free movement. They will swing into motion and do a little dance for you. 

Dhokra metal craft is an ancient craft that uses the lost-wax casting technique. Dhokra metal craft is primarily from three regions: West Bengal, Odisha and Jharkhand. 

Each product goes through several stages of making.

  1. First, blocks of wax are hand-moulded into shape, and decorations added using wax threads.
  2. The shape is then carefully covered with layers of clay, taking the form of the wax on the inside.
  3. The clay is baked, during which the wax melts and drains away, leaving a mould (a hollow within the clay).
  4. The mould is then filled with molten metal, which takes the shape that the wax left behind.
  5. The clay is then chipped off and the dragonfly is polished and finished.

Each of these needs to be made separately, and will never be exactly the same as the others. This is the mark of a true handmade item.

How to use them

These decorative pieces have a metal hook on the chain making it easy to hang them on a nail or hook on a corbel. Use them creatively as decor accents.
