Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra

Birds of Indonesia

So someone said ‘why only talk talk about art always’ ….

So let’s change the track a bit for today and talk about birds!

I spent an hour this afternoon  exploring the area of ornithology – which until yesterday was just a word to me.

Here are the stepping stones that took me down this road:

 

So many different types of birds!

Who would have imagined that there’s more to life than textile art!

🙂

Now it is the job of my ‘birder’ husband to identify the birds we are so excited about!

How wonderful the world of Ornithology is eh?

🙂

And if this is not enough we can also check out the butterflies of Indonesia!

Or the plants:

And with so much to write about, it is natural that the artist had to use both sides of the cloth to present all these beauties … and so her masterpiece came to be a double-sided batik!

Antique BAtik Tulis Tiga Negeri Signed

And after pouring her soul into the lesson on the beauty of Indonesia it was natural that she sign her name in!

What a magnificent way to learn about nature!

Am too happy to have found this to be too serious in this note :).

But factually – this is a Batik Tulis Tiga Negeri from the 1930s or so.

See previous note on the subject for more details.
