This wrought iron sculpture of a group of tribal men dancing to traditional tunes at a social gathering, is a beautiful vignette straight out of the social life of the indigenous people of Bastar. Capturing movements such as the fluidity of dance, is a skill that comes naturally to these rustic craftsmen. That they capture these in a medium such as iron is awe-inspiring. Their attention to detail, such as the positions of the hands and legs of the dancers, the intricate twirls of their staffs etc., makes them artisans par excellence.

This beautiful work of tribal art can be a good piece of decor by itself, or paired with the matching sculpture of a group of dancing tribal women, also rendered in wrought iron.

Bastar wrought iron artifacts are moulded into shape from scrap iron made pliable by heating in furnaces, using basic tools such as hammer and tongs. Yet, they are rendered with such finesse and detail, that they make brilliant collectibles and gifts.
