Wrought Iron handicraft is also known as “Pitva Art “ is an Ancient art form, made by a very small Tribal community of Bastar, Chhattisgarh.
They use mostly waste or left out Iron pieces, cut them manually by chisel and hammer, and heat it with charcoal.
Mostly all the human and animal figures are made of a single piece of sheet by manual hammering work of a hot metal piece.
To make a joint they use Rivets. NO Welding machine, cutting machine, mold are used to make an artifact and that makes it a true handicraft. When you touch and feel the product you can see the hard work behind each and every piece.
After making, each and every piece is treated with Red oxide to avoid Rust in the future and then 3 layers of oil paint (Mat Finish) are done to finish the product. For the maintenance, in long run, we recommend gently clean it with Cotton and oil. Each and every piece will last for a lifetime.
