Dokra Art.

If you were wondering about the lovely sun-pendant in brass, it is called Dokra Art. It is made by folk craftsmen from parts of Orissa, Madhya Pradesh & Bengal.

Dokra Art involves making simple folk-style figures of owls, horses, Gods & Goddesses using clay, wax and brass metal. This owl is such a cutie!
