Inspired by the Jaka Tarub legends of Java, Eko Purnomo paints an enticing composition of Nawang Wulan. She is the angelic wife of Jaka Tarub, who tricked her into marrying him by hiding her sacred shawl. When she discovers her husband's treachery, she leaves him, taking their children to the heavens with her. She is depicted here semi-nude, wearing her shawl around her waist. The artist employs a realist style, using an intense attention to detail to achieve this pleasing portrait.
