Dokra craft, the ancient, slightly lost, wax method of metal casting, takes us back right to the century-old Mohenjodaro period, and has a rich legacy in the history of Bengal’s handicrafts. Dokra artefacts are admired all over the world for its primeval simplicity and enchanting folk motifs. The traditional iron-smiths of Bengal, known as ‘Kamars’ or ‘Karmakars’ in the districts of Bankura, Medinipur, Purulia, Birbhum and Bardhaman excel in this exquisite art of metal casting. Bengal’s Dokra with provenance in Bankura and Bardhaman has been conferred on with Geographical Indication (GI) for its unique beauty. Today, Dokra artefacts range from figurines, deities, elephant, owl, deer and other animals to ornaments like anklet, ankle bells, earring, necklace, bangle etc. They also make utility items like nut cracker, kohl holder, vermilion holder, utensils etc.
