Elephants since ages have been a symbol of power and affluence. They also represent royalty as they were depicted as the mounts of the Gods, and were ridden by kings in processions. Thus this brass sculpture elephant denotes those elephants that have a great place in the daily lives of millions of Indians who worship them as the symbols of their deities. Traditionally elephants are also considered as a symbol of good luck, wisdom, fertility, and protection. Wearing or placing the sculpture of the elephant with its trunk raised in your home is thought to attract good fortune, as it showers its positive energy out of the trunk and into all surrounding beings and spaces.
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 reaady.
