Hand Dyed Silk
Hand Batik Painted
It was a beautiful morning and the seagulls soared in the blue sky. The little boats bobbing on the river carried bolts of silk brought down by merchant ships, from faraway lands. The browns, blues and greens popped like elements of a painting.
A lot of patience and persistence is required to create these pieces of intangible heritage. After drawing the subject, layers of wax is applied using a tjanting tool. The nimble fingered artisan has made sure that each magical stroke of colour brings to the fore, a vividly fascinating depiction. One can sense the profound human connection embedded in each piece. Wrap it around your shoulders and let the river of life sweep you along.
