Metal craft in India is a truly ancient craft. Today it has attained the standard of fine art and plays an important part in the religious and community life of the people. Despite everything, the tribal metal craft remains simple and spontaneous, and therein lies its beauty.

This mask, made of brass and bell metal known as 'dhokra' work, is produced in the tribal areas of eastern and central India. The tribals use the cire-perdue (lost wax) procedure to produce these kind of vigorous ancestral and votive icons, masks and other objects. This mask has a decorative head gear with horns and leaf like structures; strings falling down on the forehead. It has eyes with distinct eye lids with a protruding eye ball. The cheeks and the chin of the mask have decorative circles. The projected line that makes the eyebrows also form the outline of the nose and ends with two small rings on either side. The ears are decorative by themselves yet have two earrings on the upper lobe and lower lobe each. The curve of the upper lip so falls to lend a smile to the lips and makes it a happy mask.

To the urban folk, it is an aesthetically moulded decorative item, but for the tribals, this also wards off the evil spirits and is considered auspicious.

Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
