Vamana Avtar: fifth of the 10 incarnations (avatars) of the Hindu god Vishnu.
Through intensive religious rituals, the demon king Bali conquered the gods. The god Vishnu came to earth as Vamana, his fifth avatar, to defeat him. Vamana appeared as a dwarflike Brahmin. When the pious Bali asked what gift the holy man desired, Vamana requested only as much land as he could cover in three steps. The king laughingly granted the request. Assuming a gigantic form, Vamana with one step covered the whole earth, and with the second step the midworld between earth and heaven. As there was nowhere left to go, the demon king lowered his head and suggested Vamana place his foot on it for the promised third step. Vamana was pleased, and with the pressure of his foot sent Bali down below to rule the netherworld.
Art Form: Dhokra is a 5000 years old art form. It is an ancient method of making metal artifacts by a wax-casting technique. The process of making Dokra is delicate and uses only natural raw materials. The basic mold is made with fine sand (mostly found next to the river banks) and clay.
It can be gifted on varied occasions like wedding, housewarming, birthdays and anniversaries and all other special times.
