This wonderful organic piece of batik art comes from Jogyakarta in Central Java. The design is a powerful one evoking Sri Dewi the goddess of the rice harvest with lots of rice spirit houses, stalks of rice grains and eagle's wings - the symbol of the Sultan. All on an intense ukel (hook) background.
Vegtable dyes of indigo and soga, and all hand drawn batik tulis.
It is probably 90 - 100 years old with some minor repairs and a few spots of staining.
