Draped in the most simple of all fineries, she holds a Veena, book and japamala in her hands. The swan serves her. She is the wisdom personified, that wisdom which inspires Brahma to create. She is the Shakti of Brahma.
She is saras which means fluid. Fluid has the tendency to flow. She is mobile. The earning of knowledge never stops.
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!
