Dokra Art

Dokra Art – unique by process!

Ethnic to the eastern belt of India, particularly Tribal Odisha, Dokra artwork is a traditional non-ferrous metal casting modus operandi, whose origin could be traced back to the 4000-year old Indus Valley Civilization. The legendary dancing girl sculpture found in Mohenjo-Daro was prepared using the lost-wax casting technique. However implausible it may sound, artisans in Odisha, Chhattisgarh and West Bengal are still using this 4000-year-old Dokra art technique to yield a variety of pieces of jewellery and art in bell metal and brass which are tremendously prevalent both amongst tribal folks as well as indigenous and transnational tourists.
