Javanese philosophy speaks of kapti kerdating sukma, work created by the vibration of the soul. Dedication to this principal, including an understanding that such work must be collaborative, has given birth to the form of batik that is the signature of the Brahma Tirta Sari batik studio.
Brahma Tirta Sari explores the roots of Javanese traditional batik, continuing its essence in a contemporary spirit. The art of Agus Ismoyo and Nia Fliam, who founded the studio in 1985, expresses the traditional belief that the creative process can touch upon the sacred.
This stunning batik is mounted on a silk backing and has been prepared with a sleeve to slide in a piece of wood or bamboo for hanging.
