Gadwakam is metal sculpture that is made using the Lost Wax Process, and comes from the Bastar region of Madhya Pradesh. In a very complex and skilled process, the sculpture comes alive with layers and layers of sculpting that starts with mud - including that from anthills - and includes wax and poured metal. At the end, when a fire is lit in a hollow at the bottom of the sculpture for the wax to melt, what is left is the brass metal, ensuring that each piece made is unique. A beautiful sculpture of a lion made by award winning artist Suresh Waghmare.
