Lou’s playfulness and skilled eye captured design found in shadows, shapes found throughout the world and particularly in Indonesia. Bodi Leaf is the name of this cloth which is distinctive as a wall hanging. The Bodi Tree was a large, old, sacred fig tree where the Buddha sat under when he reached enlightenment.
Lou Zeldis took traditional batik and turned it on its head while still using traditional batik artisans and the hand drawn canting technique from Central Java.
