Lamak Endek, ceremonial runner, Singaraja, North Bali, first quarter 20th century or later, weft ikat on silk, natural dyes.
Patterns on Singaraja endek cloths are often loosely derived from patola, which were highly prestigious double-ikat textiles from India traded into Bali for centuries, most of them certainly arriving in Singaraja harbour, a prominent port in Bali’s lucrative slave trade. Lamak are long runners affixed to shrines during ceremonies, as symbolic “staircases” or “ladders” connecting the world of the gods with that of humans. At left, a lamak on a tall shrine during a temple ceremony in Ubud. (MT)

Saput Songket Endek Wayang man’s over-sarong, Singaraja, North Bali, first quarter 20th century or earlier, weft ikat on silk, natural dyes, gold and silver supplementary weft end bands
This cloth would have been used only as a component of important temple offerings, not worn, although its form is that of a man’s saput which is normally worn over a longer sarong for ceremonial occasions. In Balinese ceremonies it is traditional to provide elements of “dress” as part of sets of offerings to deities and ancestors; dress is not only for people to wear, it is also a valuable symbol gift. The endek motifs include paired wayang kulit figures and mask-like motifs derived from palm leaf offerings known as sampian penyeneng. The function of a penyeneng is to ensure happiness (from the Balinese word seneng, meaning “happy”). (MT)
