Vintage Rare Old Indonesian Batik Original Huge 100% Cotton Wall Art 79" X 41" :
This Batik textile wall hanging was collected in 1967 by my friend who was a professional graphic artist for the State Department, while she was stationed in Thailand. The age of the piece may be older than the '60s. It has been well cared for and there are no imperfections whatsoever.The piece is of impressive size at 79" by 41", and is expertly made using high quality materials. The fabric is tightly woven 100% cotton and all dyes are 100% natural. No stamps were used; the artist applied wax for this design entirely by hand. Dye edges are crisp.The scene is a wonderful ornate carriage drawn by 8 wind horses, and occupied by a man and woman of royal bearing. Also a servant rides in back, a driver in front, and the flying horses are managed by 4 men: one on horseback, and three walking alongside except their shoes have little wings so they are also flying. There are cloud and wind symbols underneath the carriage as well as two clouds above.
The top border is a beautiful pattern of geometric symmetry. The other three sides are also decorated with a balanced floral theme border.
All colors are natural dark browns, blue indigo, black, and the white color is the original color of the cotton (no dye).
The wall hanging is alive with activity, endlessly interesting to study each facial expression, details of their costumes, details of the coach itself, and even the fanciful flowers in the borders.
