Beaded cotton batik shoulder bag, 'Sawunggaling Dance' (Indonesia)

Batik techniques on cotton retell the legend of a majestic rooster owned by the king. This shoulder bag from Wahyu Sulistiani depicts the sawunggaling pattern from Central Java, which symbolizes the power and beauty of Javanese culture. Lined in black, the bag features golden beadwork accents and opens to reveal a convenient pocket.
