Small Batik Wood Globe Box
This lovely small globe box and lid are hand carved from Albesia wood and intricately hand batiked in Central Java. Growing out of the traditional batik fabric industry, batik wood is a natural evolution of batik on fabric with its rich history and artistry. Using the same tools and techniques, batik wood employs layers of wax applied with the traditional canting (chanting) tool in detailed replicating classic Javanese motifs. A time-consuming process is required to lay out each pattern in successive layers of wax and dye, and then boiled to remove the wax.
Approximately 3.5" H and 3" in diameter.
