[ INDONESIA ] Kawung Nitik-Batik Jogjakarta Indonesia & Postcrossing Meet-up signs
Kawung Nitik is one of the Batik motif from Jogjakarta, Indonesia. The Kawung is one of the oldest designs, and was reserved for the royal family.
It represents a cross-section of the aren-palm fruit, and some say the cross in between
the four ovals refers to the universal energy source.
While there are many variations, the basic structure is a group of four circles or ovals nearly touching each other,
laid out on the cloth in geometric symmetry.
