Exquisite vintage Indonesian batik featuring a male and female figure in traditional dress. The brilliantly colored South Asian batik shows two figures, potentially in courtship. The topless figures both wear traditional head dress. Lively patterns of purple, orange, and yellow captivate the viewer. The colors evoke a sort of magical ambiance. Perhaps this scene is taking place at sunset with a seemingly fire-lit sky. It is clear that this piece was treasured by the previous owner. The framing is second to none! The burnt orange matte appears to be suede or velvet – a costly upgrade from typical board mattes. The frame itself is a thick faux bamboo with metallic finish. The batik is protected by an acrylic pane. No expense was speared during framing, hinting at the importance of the batik.

Dimensions: 43″ Wide x 1.5″ Deep x 43.25″ High

Batik is an Indonesian technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to the whole cloth. This technique originated from the island of Java, Indonesia. Batik is made either by drawing dots and lines of the resist with a spouted tool called a canting, or by printing the resist with a copper stamp called a cap. The applied wax resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to color selectively by soaking the cloth in one color, removing the wax with boiling water, and repeating if multiple colors are desired.Batik is very important to Indonesians and many people would wear it to formal or casual events. Batik is commonly used by Indonesians in various rituals, ceremonies, traditions, celebrations, and even in daily uses.
