From the heart of West Bengal comes an art so eternal, it is cast in the absoluteness of metal. An ancient method of making metal artefacts, Dhokra art goes back 5000 years. What’s shocking, however, is that this tribal art form, done by the traditional metalsmiths of Bengal – the Dhokra Damar tribes, has survived the test of time and is still in use today. Here’s a look at the journey of this metal art from the heartlands of Bengal to the rest of the world.

What is Dhokra art?

Dhokra art is essentially stunning metal figurines fashioned from bronze and copper based alloys using a ‘lost wax casting’ known as ‘cire perdue’ in French. There are several processes involved in the making of Dhokra art and hence, a single piece could take up to a month or two to be created.
