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 and coming batik artist, Johan.
The unity of the spirits and the real identities of the Natives were handed down by their ancestors. The painting depicts two flamboyant masks looking right back at the viewer. Laid on a dark background, the masks strike out with each one having its own design and color.
