Made by traditional methods using brass, this figurine is a example of the tribal dressing styles prevalent in Odisha. This piece of art has been made by a traditional dokra artist who was trained in the family arts by his elders.
The musical instrument used here is called “ektara” in Hindi as it only has one string and is played using a bow.
This piece can used as a desktop accessory to show your appreciation to traditional Odia craft. It can also displayed as a part of a set.
Dokra as a craft in India is more than 4000 years old and is still used to make curios, jewellery and tabletop items.
