Thanks for reaching back. I think is very important that we acknowledge what we take/borrow from others. Since u are born in Bastar u would know that dhokra developed from Bronze Age in India. I am happy that u acknowledge that u have taken a lot from what is more than 4000 year old tribal proccess and imagery. Meera Mukherjee (1925-1998) the great sculptor was indebted to Bastar tribals for the developents in her art.
All the best and please do mention ur gratitude where it is due. becuse i believe the tribals are greater artists than us.
