Temples are an important part of Hindu religion. Their erection is considered a reintegration of Parapet (first man of creation, like Adam) enabling him to continue his creative activity. Here, this theme has been coupled with batik, a rare and exotic art form. Batik, like any other art, is all about creativity, dexterity and patience. The temple, the main theme of batik belongs to Surya (sun) and Soma (moon), the gods of nature. The worship of the sun is very ancient and some scholars hold the view that all religions had their origin in sun worship. Vedic Aryans loved the brighter side of life and hence the sun was an important object of worship. In Hindu mythology, the moon is a male deity. It is generally called chandra or Soma. Various color differentiation, which signify the kashas, or sheaths divide the temple, which represents the human body. The innermost chamber of the temple is the 'Garbha-Griha' where the idol is consecrated. The deity residing in the Garbha Griha, Surya and Som here represents the Atman or the soul.

Red color and shades belonging to the same family are extensively used here. Symbolically, red represents the gods. Black and Yellow form the color contrast in a very aesthetic way. The crinkle, characteristic feature of batik is visible more clearly on the lighter colors. Sticking to symbolic color representation the sun god is done in yellow and the moon god is white/silver. The foreground has the temple wall, one in each color of the gods. There is amazing balance in composition as well as color.
