> DESCRIPTION

The tools are simple. The technique is complicated. The results are extraordinary. Batik is a famous artistic tradition of the Indonesian island of Java, where the process of creating patterned cloth with hot wax has reached the highest level of complexity. In this exhibition you will see some of the finest batik textiles, whose remarkable diversity draws inspiration from a wide range of cultures and religions.

This exhibition was organized by the Asian Art Museum
