Kain Panjang Batik Soga, Central Java, mid-20th century, hand-drawn batik on imported cotton, natural dyes (indigo and soga, which is a dye from the root-bark of morinda citrifolia, known as “Noni” in the South Pacific).
This batik is filled with paired creatures of the sea and sky: hammerhead sharks (shown), jellyfish, reef fish, crustaceans and all manner of birds. In Javanese batik tradition, the joining of the worlds of water and air symbolises the union of masculine and feminine and therefore fertility. Pairing of the creatures underlines this theme. (MT)
