Ambling amidst the paths of the east, my eyes witnessed with ease, a sensational ritual that followed just before the dusk could seize. A village that embellished beauty in its veins had the breeze set for everything that was to be acclaimed. Where the villagers held hands and the women carried baskets: all danced in the shadows of the vines, as it was the wait of the hymn that dripped the chaos of the night. With the majestic fish plopping, the guardian owls drooping, the woman of court danced and the children played instruments in sheer delight as it was the welcoming of the utterly beautiful sunshine. As the astonishing deer and the ancestral elephant stood, the rays shed and covered the entire scenery which was pleasant enough to satisfy the senses and embellish the worthwhile. It was resplendence of its kind which wasn't meant to be-wither with time, a village that enchanted glory so alluring enriched the eternities of its own chime and relinquished elegance with utmost sublime.

Lost-wax casting technique is still used for non-ferrous metal casting in Dhokra Art.
Solid casting and hollow casting are the two different ways in which lost wax casting can be done. The solid casting is predominantly done in Southern India and uses a solid piece of wax to create mould while, in hollow casting clay core is used which is more traditional and it is more common in Central and Eastern India.
Before Any Artisan Sits To Make The Figure, He Prays For Guidance From Tristram (son Of Lord Vishwakarma), Said To Be An Expert In Metal Alloys. In the dawn of the day, the artisans wake up to form the clay core which is roughly the shape of the final cast image. This process defines what our product will be. The Artisans with all of his concentration while sitting in the Eastern part of India forms it. Next step is covering the clay core with a layer of wax which is composed of ingredients which are very difficult to find in forests of the village, these are pure beeswax, resin from the tree Damara Orientalis, and nut oil.
When the wax solidifies, in the dawn of the day artisans starts with shaping and carving the mould in all of its finer details of design and decorations. Then again, a layer of clay is applied to it which takes the negative form of the wax. Drain ducts are left for the wax, which melts away when the clay is cooked this shows the impeccable design and process of dhokra art.
The wax is then replaced with Brass; it hardens between the core and the inner surface of the mould. The metal takes the same shape as the wax. Here the manufacturing process doesn’t stop, then the artisans give his/her finer touches and polish it as desired.
