This batik on silk is inspired by the Pengosekan Ubud painting style of presentating flora and fauna. The pattern, featuring three differently styled pairs of peacocks, differs from those in traditional batik in that the background displays no traditional filler elements (isen-isen) as is common in Javanese batik. The kain panjang (rectangular cloth) comes with a 225cm silk shawl with peacock on each end and glass beaded fringe. From the Nataraja Studio, Yogyakarta, by the Balinese artist Made (2006).
113x 238cm.
