Primitive and Old Brass Dokra / Dhokra Woman / Animal Statue, East India
Detail: Dokra / Dhokra is a tribal Indian handicraft. Thought to be the oldest form of metal casting (lost wax process). What makes these pieces so popular is a “varied designs” issue and because of its primitive simplicity. Images of ritual deities were popular with these artisans. It has a definite aesthetic appeal. I secured this from a private collector of Dokra craft in California. Very unique and very old. Circa early 1900’s. In very good condition. For the Serious Collector.
