Dhokra craft is non–ferrous metal casting using the lost wax technique for casting of copper based alloys or hollow casting. This technique has been used in India from pre-historic time of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro period of Indus Civilization and is still used. It involves intricately patterning a clay core with wax ribbons and then coating it carefully with a mix of clay and hay. The wax is subsequently melted off, and the cavity formed is filled with molten metal. When this solidifies, the craftsman reveals the beauty of his creation by cautiously breaking open the outer clay shell. The dhokra crafts are crafted in the Bastar & Raigarh districts of Chhattisgarh
