Jungle of Eden is a three-part batik series following a snake’s journey in an unspecified jungle of the tropics. A master of disguise and deception, the snake takes the shapes and forms of nature's wonders. Lurking both obscurely and conspicuously, the wait to meet Man unfolds into a familiar story of the fall of mankind. Jungle of Eden is an artistic interpretation of the Garden of Eden in a Southeast Asian setting.

 

This limited batik series is a collaboration between Hutan Tropical and 花花世界 (Fah Fah Sai Gai), and is traditionally produced by the batik artisans of Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The series was officially launched over the weekend of 13th & 14th July 2019, at the Office for Applied Arts

& Artifacts.
