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 grand master artist of batik, Hamidi.
The majestic trees in rural China bring shade and beauty to much of the artisan’s work. He masterfully conveys the sensation of village life, depicting a huge bamboo tree overlooking the village. A bamboo tree symbolizes simplicity and humility because it produces neither flowers nor fruits.
