This hand drawn batik was bought by us about 40 years ago from the village of Trusmi where the batik of the Royal Court city of Cirebon is made. The design is called "Taman Arum" or Fragrant Garden and it depicts the Sultan's Palace gardens with rocks, foliage, royal parasols, pavillions, lions and mythical winged beasts.
The Chinese design influences in the "megamendung" pattern of the rocks can be clearly seen. Golden brown, blue and black on an ivory background
New condition. Size: 1.02 x 2.56 m
