Dhokra art - using the 4000 yr old 'lost-wax casting' technique used by Dhokra Damar tribes in India.

Each lady is unique.

The lost-wax process with brass begins with a model made of beeswax, or another material with a low melting point. After the wax object is carved, several layers of clay are applied. The entire mould is then heated so that the wax melts and drains away. Molten metal is then poured into the resulting cavity. Once the metal has cooled and hardened, the clay is chipped off, leaving the metal object.
The produced objects are always unique, as every time the mould is necessarily destroyed.
