Made by traditional methods using brass, masks are a traditional subject. This piece of art has been made by a traditional dokra artist who was trained in the family arts by his elders.
With its softer contours and lips this mask can easily be seen as female. It is designed to be mounted and displayed on a wall. It can also be displayed as a showpiece inside a case.
Dokra as a craft in India is more than 4000 years old and is still used to make curios, jewellery and tabletop items.
