One frequently sees iconic images and religious subjects depicted in batik works. Representational scenes are hard to come by because it involves many colours which means as many times of dyeing and waxing. By depicting an evening scene, the artist has managed to reduce the number of colours considerably.

A tree cuts across the pictorial space dividing the god's dwelling on the right and the village hutment area on the left. The serenity of the scene is captured by the stillness of the foliage and the clear sky. Glowworms can be seen amongst trees in the dark night. Although most inhabitants have retired a few can still be seen. A man is drawing his oxen cart towards the tree where a cart lies strewn and the two oxen are resting close to it. The temple built on a high plinth has a tapering shikhar. A few people can be seen around it. Women are returning to their dwellings with water pot on their heads.

There is solitude and stillness in the scene strengthened by the colours. Brown, yellow and green are predominantly used with off white colour catapulting the picture into prominence. Despite the bright yellow and white, the work maintains the peaceful ambience of the village by night.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
