Horses are regarded as universal symbols of freedom since riding one freed people from their bonds and bounds. They are also symbols of travel, movement, and desire. Symbolizing journeys, movement, and desire, our tribal artists from Chhattisgarh, have crafted this beautiful artefact, an extensive and laborious work, out of Bastar Dhokra Art.
Dhokra making process has several steps:
- Making clay model
- Giving designs of bee-wax on dried clay
- Applying two layers of clay on wax design
- Creating channels for molten brass
The model is heated, then the inner layer of beeswax melts and escapes through the channels, consequently creating a space in between. This, therefore, acts as a mould. Next, hot liquid brass is poured into the mould through the channels. It is allowed to cool until the brass completely solidifies. Then the outer mud layer is broken to obtain a brass model. After some final finishing touches, the exquisite Dhokra art is ready!
