Amaram Kashyap- Dhokra Artist-Dancing Girl, a bronze sculpture created using the lost-wax method and discovered in Mohenjo-Daro, the center of the Indus Valley Civilization, is widely regarded as the genesis of the Dhokra Art style.
Over 500 tribal families in the Bastar region of Chhattisgarh still practice the Dhokra art that has been passed down from generation to generation, even though the center of this art has shifted nearly 2000 kilometers to the southeast over the past four thousand years.
Amaram Kashyap resides in the small village of Arrakotte, located in the Tokapal block of the Jagdalpur District of Chhattisgarh. He was acclaimed for his exquisite miniature Dhokra sculptures depicting animals such as deer, elephants, camels, etc.
He picked up the skills from his father at a young age, continuing a family tradition that dates back more than 150 years and several generations. To date, he has spent about 20 years perfecting this craft.
He uses his little plot to grow rice for his family in the wetter months.
Beautiful works of art, such as those depicting deer, elephants, camels, and other animals, are the product of his studio, which is conveniently located next to his home.
In Amaram's opinion, in the future, he plans to pass the knowledge forward to his offspring, ensuring that the custom will always be part of the family's legacy.
