A Garbha Tribe Musician
The beautiful image of the Garbha musician has been nicely crafted in the traditional dhokra style revealing some greater level of artistic excellence and sculptural refinement. The tribal artist is shown playing the drum with his both hands. He is also shown wearing nice clothes. The figure has been crafted in the lost wax technique. The figurine attests to the refined excellence of the dhokra artists and their desire to preserve this fine art. Meaning "oldest," dhokra is a crafting tradition dating as far back as 2000 B.C.. Dhokra art is largely associated with the tribal groups of northern India, including Vindhyas and the Eastern Ghats, Bihar and its surroundings, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal. Myriad images are cast in the dhokra tradition as artisans preserve their millenary culture, custom and belief through the wondrous pieces they create.
