Looking for the perfect housewarming gift for your friends ? Look no further. The tortoise is a symbol of wisdom and knowledge, and is able to defend itself on its own. It personifies water, the moon, the Earth, time, immortality, and fertility. Creation is associated with the tortoise and it is also believed that the tortoise bears the burden of the whole world. Dhokra is a 5000 year old art form with the dancing girl of Mohenjodaro being its earliest artefact. It is an ancient method of making metal artifacts by a wax-casting technique. The process of making Dhokra is fascinating and uses only natural raw materials. The basic mold is made with fine sand (mostly found next to the river banks) and clay. Belonging to a rare and unique breed of items and processes, the Dhokra products are indeed a collectible.
