Dokra This is a type of tribal art with brass metal and normally crafted by the nomadic tribes. They are now more or less settled in certain areas of Bengal and MP. The difference between the brass from other art centers like Moradabad in UP is that the art pieces are ornamented with thin brass wires, which are twisted and turned to carve out various shapes that you recognize giving a very rustic look and feel to the artifacts. The casting though is done using the lost wax method, which is the oldest way of metal casting. The actual center of making this is located 25 km’s from the town. But you can buy most of what is made there in the town.
