Dewi, Coming Forth

$279.00 SGD

Imagine a garden. Soothing to the soul, a sight to behold. 

Butterflies fill this entire batik piece. Classically, these insects are synonymous with purity. A butterfly emerging from its cocoon. A state of being reborn. The colour white symbolises the Javanese’s spiritual nature and the qualities they take to heart: honesty, love and forgiveness. 

Meanwhile, the kawung motif borders this batik lengthwise. As a symbol of community, it adds a deeper layer to the overall meaning of this art. Perhaps it is an ode to the beautiful outcomes of community and kinship. No man is an island. A pair of hands may tend to a garden, but many hands together make a beautiful one. And while a community is not without its faults, love and forgiveness can make them emerge stronger. 

Textile
Time taken to make: 1 month.  A white backdrop in batik is rare. Despite leftover wax on minor areas, this piece is the closest to perfection. All dyes used are natural only, with the blue hues seen here extracted from the indigofera plant.
