A highly decorated boat with an elaborate sail, complete with waves, rounds and lattice-like stylized patterns, and numerous other eye catching details. The main theme of the artwork centers around the boatmen and the oars, which, along with the rest of the visual elements, creates a sense of teamwork, trust, faith and purpose, and endless, unceasing motion, as in the oars and the waves; finally, in general, there is a feeling of being immersed in one's work.
Dhokra making process has several steps, which include making clay model, giving designs of bee-wax on dried clay, applying two layers of clay on wax design, and creating channels for molten brass. The model is heated, then the inner layer of beeswax melts and escapes through the channels, consequently creating a space in between. This, therefore, acts as a mold. Hot liquid brass is poured into the mold through the channels. It is allowed to cool until the brass completely solidifies. Then the outer mud layer is broken to obtain a brass model. After some final finishing touches, the exquisite Dhokra art is ready!
