The sun is shining and the wind is blowing a cool breeze over the three figures sitting on the bare ground with each other. Food is shared but the evening is not complete until tales have been told and traded. Moments like these are not just set in stone now but with metal too!
Dhokra is an art that is almost 4,500 years old! This ancient art form has now mutated to a form more beautiful. Rock has been added to this traditionally metal intensive craft. Rock and metal, who knew it was such a divine marriage!
This modernised and amazing branch of Dhokra was developed in the Devrai Art Village in Panchgani. Rock Dhokra is revolutionary as it requires not just an imaginative yet practical mind to visualise metal around a rock body but also the technical expertise to pull off the optimum temperatures to fuse metal (brass) with rock.
