Dokra is an ancient technique of producing a non-ferrous metal (commonly BRASS) ware by metal casting process. The artisans follow the process which is believed to be 5,000 years old to make figurines, animals, deities and jewellery.
Dhokra artists who have been practicing this art for more than 120 years are usually settled in West Bengal, Orissa, and Chattisgarh.
The long-drawn process of metal casting is followed by the local artisans who have to put in a lot of effort and patience to fetch different kinds of materials and turn and mold every piece that is already broken apart.
Keep Dokra Alive.
