The craft of Adilabad Dokra is a tradition of the Woj community of Telangana. These brass metal items represent cultural symbols of their community from idols of gods and goddesses, decorative items to personal accessories and ornaments worn by men and women. The Wojaris, also called Otaris have knowledge of craft making since antiquity. The technique of hand crafting follows the traditional lost wax method with the item to be cast having a core of clay. Each piece is separately molded and handcrafted; the mold being constantly remade results in no two pieces being similar in shape and size with each being distinctive and individualistic. In spite of a growing demand the craftspersons continue with their traditional technique with each product crafted being unique from the idols to their metal representations of animals and plants.
