The oldest archaeological and literary evidence of lost-wax casting can be found in India, dating back nearly 5,000 years to the Harappan period.
There are two main processes of lost wax casting: solid casting, which is predominant in the south of India, and hollow casting, which is more common in Central and Eastern India.
One of the earliest known Indian lost wax artifacts is the Dancing Girl of Mohenjor Daro, which dates to 2500 B.C.
"Dhokra" metal casting has been practiced in India continuously since the Harrapan period, although with the introduction of more modern metal working and founding techniques it is quickly fading away.
Please note that due to the heavy weights of these statues, shipping can be relatively expensive - try various combinations of products to achieve best value.
