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.

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.

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.

"Pretty but too short"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The picture is deceptive. The scarf is as wide as my hand and goes around my neck to my chest. I cant loop it ...its so short. Very disappointing. Art work is pretty but it would make a better hot pad or placemate.
