[ 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.
