Batik for mystical use, Cirebon, West Java, early to mid-20th century, hand-drawn batik on imported cotton, natural and aniline dyes.
This cloth was used by a shamanic healer to induce the proper state of mind for mystical practices, and proabably also to impress the people who came to him for assistance. The motifs include kris (magical daggers), and talismanic ciphers. Traditions of mysticism are strong throughout Java, blending Sufism with indigenous folk beliefs. At left is a talismanic drawing in which kris and magical inscriptions also figure prominently. (MT)
