Processing your request, Please wait....

Dhokra is an ancient art form significant for making metal artifacts using the lost-wax casting technique. It is a tribal form of art that dates back to nearly 5000 years and has effectively survived the time’s test by being in use till date, popular for making human or animal figurines, religious deities, lamps, and measuring bowls; for a superfine quality single product, it takes approximately a month as this is a complex art form that involves multiple stages and layers of work type. This tribal Dakshinamurti Shiva Statue is an apt example of the bronze wax-casting technique, with every feature and accessory molded in realistic styles and designs. Shiva Statue sits in lalitasana on the distinctively styled deer throne under a banyan tree along with the four sages perched on all four corners near the divine feet receiving his instructions in obeisance. This form of Shiva’s iconography depicts him as being revered as Dakshinamurti Shiva-an aspect of him being the benevolent teacher (guru) who accords wisdom to seekers of salvation.
