Product Details

Embark on a journey into the world of timeless artistry and cultural heritage with the Dhokra Framing, an exquisite piece of Dhokra casted authentic handicraft that beautifully encapsulates the spirit of people sailing on a ship. This remarkable creation pays homage to the rich tradition of Dhokra casting and the enduring allure of seafaring adventures.

Unveiling the Art of Dhokra Casting:

Dhokra casting, an ancient metalworking technique with origins dating back over 4,000 years in India, stands as a testament to the country's enduring craftsmanship. The intricate process begins with the creation of a clay core, meticulously sculpted into the desired form. Skilled artisans then apply a layer of wax to form the intricate details of the final piece. Once the wax-coated clay core is encased in another layer of clay, a mold is formed.

At the heart of Dhokra casting lies the "lost wax" method. The mold is subjected to intense heat, causing the wax to melt away, leaving behind a hollow cavity that perfectly mirrors the sculpture's design. Molten metal, often a blend of brass and other alloys, is then poured into this cavity. After cooling and solidifying, the clay mold is carefully broken open, unveiling the exquisite metal sculpture concealed within. The final piece undergoes meticulous finishing, including polishing and patination, to bring out its unique character.

A Tribute to Seafaring Adventures:

The Dhokra Framing beautifully captures the essence of maritime exploration and adventure. This exquisite piece features a meticulously crafted frame adorned with the figures of people on a ship, each engaged in different activities, such as rowing, navigating, or simply enjoying the journey. The scene exudes an aura of exploration and the excitement of discovering new horizons.

The sculptures within the frame are a testament to the skilled craftsmanship of Dhokra casting, showcasing intricate details of the ship, the people on board, and the waves beneath. This attention to detail brings the scene to life, invoking the spirit of seafaring adventures from a bygone era.

Versatile and Aesthetic Delight:

Whether displayed in your living room, study, or any space in need of a touch of culture and sophistication, it adds a unique dimension to your surroundings.
