Batik Teratai Raksasa

I just finished this illustration of an Indonesian batik featuring the pattern of Victoria amazonica.  This giant waterlily lives in the pool inside Kebun Raya Bogor.  I used the more lively colours of yellow, aqua, light green and brown.  The style is close to Cirebon of West Java.
The headdress is a head cloth worn as part of muslim clothing.  The jasmine flowers are weaved into decorative head piece.  The batik shows the back view same as the front view on Kai Bolorong's batik.  I will work on this design eventually and get it produced one day.
