The Indian tusked elephant continues to be a classic and adored work of Indian culture and art, whether it is shown alone or as a component of a larger décor ensemble.Dhokra metal casting is a more than 4,000-year-old technique for creating metal items. The Dhokra tribe, who has used this method for decades to create exquisite and detailed metal goods like jewellery, sculptures, and home décor items, gave it its name.

Making a clay model of the intended object is the first step in the Dhokra metal casting process. This model is then covered in a mixture of beeswax, resin, and nut oil. After covering the wax-coated model with clay, the wax is melted out via tiny pores to produce a hollow mould. Once the metal has cooled, it is poured into the clay mould, which is then chipped away to show the final metal sculpture.

The elaborate motifs and rustic appeal of dhokra metal have made it a distinctive and one-of-a-kind type of metalwork that has been valued for ages. Typically, copper, zinc, and tin are mixed with other metals to create Dhokra casting, giving it a warm, earthy tone that complements any decor.

Dhokra metal objects are a favourite among those who enjoy traditional arts, handmade crafts, and original home décor. They are ideal for collectors, art lovers, or anyone who enjoys surrounding oneself with lovely, handmade items that have a purpose.
