The word "batik" is roughly translated "to write" or "to dot." Batik artwork encompasses the ancient Indonesian Javanese philosophies of life and the artwork used in textiles and artisan wood carving. Creating batik art on textiles involves the use of dye-resistant wax to make unique patterns and designs. When the wax is rinsed away, the pattern or design is revealed on the fabric. The process can then be repeated using different colors. When batik art is applied to a solid surface such as wood in this case, the art is painted directly on the surface. The resulting artwork shows a classic artistic butterfly that makes the handmade wooden jewelry box a magnificent addition to any collection.
