Crafting Technique

Wrought iron handicraft, also known as "Pitwa Art," is a centuries-old art form created by a small tribal community in Bastar, Chhattisgarh. They mostly use scrap or discarded iron pieces, cut them by hand with a chisel and hammer, and heat them with charcoal. Almost all of the human and animal figures are made from a single piece of sheet metal hammered by hand. Rivets are used to make a joint. No Welding machine, cutting machine, or mould is used to create an artefact, making it a true handicraft.
