Brass + Wood Key Holder - Dhokra and Warli Art
Wooden base with 4 key hooks, small brass bells and brass Dhokra figures with a Warli painting in the centre.
Dhokra Art is native to Chattisgarh region of India where the tribal artisans use the ancient 'lost wax' process to cast brass into shapes of dancing figures, their deities and animals. This sort of metal casting has been used in India for over 4000 years. Dhokra Art is a dying art and there are very few artisans who still possess the knowledge & skill of this art. Thankfully due to great demand in domestic and foreign markets because of its primitive simplicity, enchanting folk motifs and forceful form, it has resulted in improving life of these tribal people.
Warli painting is a tribal art from India. The Warli tribe is the largest tribe in India and is centred around the concept of respecting nature and wildlife for the resources that they provide for life. The style of painting dates back as early as 10th century AD.
