Pekalongan Batik

Vintage batik tulis from Pekalongan, central Java. Using a fine copper tool called a canting, the artist draws the design on both front and back in melted wax. Subsequent dye baths and hot water washes to remove the wax create the designs, each of which is particular to the artist - in this case the artist signed the piece - look for the small gold heart in the upper left corner. Finished with a contrasting blue and white batik welt.
