Samarinda, A Batik Bouquet

$279.00 SGD

At first glance, this piece astounds us with the flora and fauna of the archipelago. Upon closer inspection, it reveals as the classic Javanese piece known as Buket Pepakan (A Complete Bouquet). Not just flowers and vines, several illustrations depict the wings of a peacock — symbols of poise and confidence. 

Interestingly, parts of the sekar jagad motif are visible, with each section filled with variations of the truntum motif — the notable ancient Javanese motif for love and persistence. This piece is made for the times and can be intepreted in many ways. One way is to coexist peacefully with nature or retreating to nature to heal. We'd like to believe that this piece reminds us to have faith in our ability to achieve our dreams against all odds. 

Textile
Time taken to make: 2 months.  With a deep indigo, almost black background and shades of gold, these natural colours are traces of the leaves, barks and roots of the archipelago.
