Batik shouldercloth, (collected in) Jambi, Sumatra, mid-20th century, hand-drawn batik, natural dyes.
The style of the white-ground areas links it to the prestigious Batik Jufri type, yet the overall composition is rather unusual. The effect is like looking through a window at a great rectangular slab floating in a starry, night sky. Graphically powerful, with great dimension. At left, a Jambi woman wearing a batik shouldercloth in the way this textile would have been worn. (MT)
