Tribal in origin, the Dokra metal craft is
common to the tribal belts of
Pradesh , Orissa
, Bengal and
Andhra Pradesh. In Andhra Pradesh this
craft is found in Chittalbori and Ushegaon in
Adilabad District. Its unique
feature is that no two pieces are similar.
Skillfully created by hand, the objects have an individualistic touch. Primarily made from brass scrap, the objects also have a core of clay preserved within the metal casting, unlike other metal work. Dokra castings comprise of lamp holders, lamps, chains, figures and various symbols of tribal folklore and religion.
