This unique and exclusive batik painting on cotton is delicately hand drawn using the 'canting' and 'tulis' methods, whereby hot wax is flown from the canting's tiny, downward-curving spouts straight onto the cotton cloth decorously then vividly painted by the master batik artist, Kapitan.
Blushing with health, Mary and baby Jesus exchange a tender hug. The Virgin caresses her child with soft hands and cradles him close to her heart. Kapitan paints an exquisite portrait, detailing every part with beautiful colours and patterns.
