Master Craftsman Jaidev Baghel was born at Kondagaon, Bastar District of Chattisgarh. He belonged to a tribal artisan community whose hereditary specialization is Gadwakam or bronze metal casting. Jaidev learnt the techniques of casting metals from his father, a well known craftsman of his time. He began making bronze sculptures as a child in Kondagaon village in Bastar, casting figures of deities, spirits, birds and everyday objects, in the lost wax technique. These were exchanged for grain and livestock. The craft of casting metal by the lost wax process is called cire perdue in the West. This technique practiced in India from the prehistoric age still survives with efforts of craftsman like Jaidev and is used for making religious images, ritualistic items and objects of utility.
