The Indian Karma festival is the inspiration for this handmade bronze sculpture.
During the festival, it is the time to engage in new relationships, and young men and women, dance around the tree of life "Karma Tree". They also climb in the branches and perform acrobatic moves to impress the other gender. This tree is one of the strongest symbols of India. The roots grow in the underworld, the trunk connects earth and sky, and the foliage and fruits symbolize new life, death, and rebirth.
Dhokra making process has several steps, which include making clay model, giving designs of bee-wax on dried clay, applying two layers of clay on wax design, and creating channels for molten brass. The model is heated, then the inner layer of beeswax melts and escapes through the channels, consequently creating a space in between. This, therefore, acts as a mould. Hot liquid brass is poured into the mould through the channels. It is allowed to cool until the brass completely solidifies. Then the outer mud layer is broken to obtain a brass model. After some final finishing touches, the exquisite Dhokra art is ready!
