Batik Art Painting, ‘Ladies Carrying Basket of Fish’ by Zabid (75cm x 90cm)
75cm (W) x 90cm (H)
Folk Art, Traditional
This unique and exclusive batik painting on cotton is delicately hand drawn using the ‘canting’ and ‘tulis’ methods, whereby hot wax is flown from the canting’s tiny, downward-curving spouts straight onto the cotton cloth decorously then vividly painted by the up coming batik artist, Zabid.
Two village ladies walk across their street lane in traditional attire to sell fresh fishes. They hope to earn some money in order to provide food for their families. The artist selects a quiet palette of vivid tones, making the batik painting nice and attractive.
