Bastar is a predominantly tribal district in south Chhattisgarh, where various art and craft traditions with important socio-religious functions are practiced. Created using the 'lost wax' or cire perdue method of casting, this figure of a goddess is richly ornamented with earrings, necklaces and girdles. The figure also carries a basket on her head, perhaps symbolic of the harvest and fertility.
