Batik, a practiced art through centuries, is a take off from the folk art. Ordinarily, cloth is dyed in boiling solution but in batik, it is dyed in cold or lukewarm bath because wax has a very low melting point. Hereon begin the unique qualities of batik.

The theme is narrative, that of a procession passing through the woods. The fact the common people are not around to appreciate the magnificence does not affect the enthusiasm of the musicians leading the procession. The quiet environment reverberates with the sound of the trumpets and drums. The large elephant, that occupies the central and major space, raises its trunk as a mark of salute to the royal couple seated on it - maybe at the behest of the mahaout and his goad. The king and the queen are seated on a makeshift throne with canopies. The elephant is adorned with a beautifully patterned over cloth and majestic ornaments. A courtier walks behind them with a sayaban in hand, as a mark or respect to the king.

A major part of the background is occupied by the foliage - large trees and bushes, almost similarly done, without any variation. The blue sky and the green vegetation is divided in a definite manner by a soft orange, a sunset kind of an effect. The artist has made use of limited colours but to best effect.

Tina, USA
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.
