Batik is basically a technique more suited for creating broad and wide patterns in simple basic colours. To use it for rendering a portrait revealing inner aspects and social status of the personality portrayed, or for creating effects of gold, silver and stones, or a front face posture is a real tough job. The artist of this piece has employed his technique and skills in discovering his figure's aesthetic beauty, the frame of her mind, her elegance and taste and has made his colours to reflect gold, silver and emeralds. The cute face of his figure cast in oval shape and her alike proportionately dressed hair, balanced figure, fine features, bright large eyes, well composed lips as fresh as the new born petals of a wild rose and a delicate build could have been difficult even for the strokes of the finest brush to render. She is made to take a stride and in that the artist has packed tons of elegance and grace.
