The statue of an elephant standing supporting a domed superstructure, figure within with extended arms; pierced lugs to the rim of the dome, frame of the arch. Fine condition.Since the mould was destroyed in the process, this is a unique work of art. Measures approx. 22 cm high, 8 cm deep and 7 cm wide.Weighs 804 grams Antique Dokra metal art used a wax casting technique dating back thousands of years. The Dokra tribes of the Bastar area of India, and the people of West Bangal and Orissa, are known for their primitive and charming metal folk art. The statue would have been created with a basic mould, made of sand and clay. Dung would be added and then layered with beeswax. Wax threads were then wound around the clay mould. The clay would have been cooked over a furnace, allowing the wax to drain away. Molten metal would then be poured inside the mould. The cast figure was then removed and cleaned with sand to polish. This statue would have taken from 15-30 days to finish. This is a really interesting antique piece and would be a great addition to any collection, a must have for any collector, it's a very interesting conversation piece that displays really well.
