Antique Miniature Copper Bronze Dokra Animal - Quail

Made from a copper rich bronze alloy over a clay core, these miniature animals are called  Dhokra, a 5000 years old art form made by a handful of Kond villages within tribal Eastern India. Dhokra is made by the lost wax method of casting, so every piece is unique and can take up to a week to complete. Our pieces are all circa 1900.

This figure is a lovely representation of a quail. Maliah Kond, Orissa, India.

Measurements: length 8.5 cm (3.5")
