Craft Revival Trust

In Rajasthan today, few ancient religious bronzes have survived. This is mainly because of the popular custom of deconsecrating old and worn out idols and immersing them in water. The metal workers of Rajasthan are known as Kaseras. Literally the term kasera means a bronze worker but it is often used to denote all metal workers. Occasionally terms such as thathera for brass workers and bharava for metal caster are used.
