Frog with a Coin - Dhokra Art

Named after the Dhokra Damar tribes of West Bengal, this traditional lost-wax casting technique originated over 4,000 years ago and remains in great demand with art lovers across the globe. Famed for its simplicity, enchanting motifs and forceful forms, Dhokra artefacts adorn the houses of true art connoisseurs across the world. The exquisite brasswork sculpture artistically represents a frog with a coin in its mouth. The sculptor's attention to detail can be seen in the detailing on the back flippers and the face of the frog, and also on the grooves on the coin, dating it back to the time of kings and kingdoms in India.

Note: These statues can be made in numbers over a specific time frame.
