These metal artefacts  are made by master craftsmen in their own small workshops or homes in the city of Jodhpur. This income supplements rather irregular income from agriculture, which forms the backbone of the economy in most of rural India. Agriculture itself is dependent on the monsoon as there are no perennial rivers in the Thar Desert so working on the land is not a reliable source of regular income in itself. The handicraft sector in Jodhpur is essential to provide a precious livelihood to both the artisans and the local economy.
