Bidri Art is a beautiful amalgamation of cultures brought to India delicately imprinted in mixture of copper, zinc and silver metals. It takes 8 laborious steps to complete the craft resulting in a gleaming black surface with contrasting silver designs, standing as symbol of Royalty and Timeless Beauty. There is a special emphasis on the oxidizing quality of the soil found only in Bidar, India so this art cannot be replicated in other areas.
