This outstanding early 20th century batik from Pekalongan has been choosen as the lead image for the exhibition, Batik of Java:poetics and politics.
The exhibition team are making great progress as we work towards the official opening on 10 July 2010 at the Caloundra Regional Gallery. In mid November, the curator Dr Maria Friend will be making her final selection of batik works from our Collection, for the exhibition.
We will share images of these beautiful batik with you over the coming months.
Batik truly is the sacred cloth of Java.
