Details

In this batik on cotton wall hanging, K. Baka considers family relations, using fish as an emotive allegory. He describes the work as "essentially about the wonder of a woman's protectiveness and love, and her natural endowment of resilience." Entitled Nye Ke Bi (the Fish and the Fry), Baka calls upon the natural gifts of the fish - its ability to handle intense pressure and evade danger - drawing a successful parallel to maternity in the terrestrial world. The artist's mercurial wit is evidenced by a superbly rendered combination of yellow, red, and black. The wall hanging features five tabs at the top for a tapestry rod (not included).

Due to the nature of batik, colors will vary slightly, making each piece an original work of art.

"Perfect for my wall"

I am very pleased with my purchase. The colors seem to be a little bit more muted than in the picture, but it is a very nice wall hanging and well made. I recommend it.

"Perfect for a beach house"

I gave this piece to my daughter who lives in Hawaii. She hung it on a bamboo rod. It looks great and is the perfect casual accent for a tropical themed room.

"These Napkin Rings go well with Fiesta Dinnerware"

I gave these napkin rings as a gift to a lovely friend. The bright colors and beautiful handwork look beautiful with my friends Fiesta Dinnerware bevy of colors. But think of the color added to your table with a vase full of sunflowers and these napkin rings contrasting with your white dinnerware and napkins! Beautiful!
