In the easternmost province of the Indonesian archipelago lies an untouched and thriving island full of magical flora and fauna called Papua. Here too lies Cenderawasih (the Bird of Paradise), a species native to this idyllic island. 

It was once thought to be a mythical animal from the heavens for its unspeakable beauty and colour, with majestic feathers in colours that can only be found in nature — an ombre of blues, yellows, reds and greens. Here, the bird is given a Javanese spin in naturally dyed sogan brown and indigo with vines and flowers in between. Eight birds – drawn with careful detail and precision – fill the entire span of this batik. This is one for the ages.
