The mythical and powerful Rajawali (Phoenix) needs no introduction. Across ancient empires from Majapahit to the Qin dynasty, it is an emblem for the mighty and valorous. In Javanese batik, deep blue and brown earthy hues is synonymous with a humble, calm and sentimental trait. The message: a deep respect for a leader brave enough to make things better but considers the feelings of his/her people before taking action.
Four regal phoenixes are hand drawn in various positions across the entire length of this batik piece — some seen to be flying, some stationary, set in a sanctuary of enchanted flora. Their proportions are immaculate, with gold hues bringing a three-dimensional experience when this artwork is viewed in full.
