Published in BATIK Traditional Textiles of Indonesia from Rudolf Smend collection (page 109)
“The festive door hanging was probably used during Chinese New Year celebrations. The multitude of creatures decorating the cloth represent three realms – water (fish, prawns, crabs and turtles), land (deer, stags and chickens) and air (birds and butterflies). According to Chinese beliefs, each of these creatures adds a symbolic message or sentiment to the textile, fish symbolize plentitude and abundance, turtles a long life and butterflies summer, beauty and romance.”

Published in BATIK Traditional Textiles of Indonesia from Rudolf Smend collection (page 84/85)
“Lasem batik was once famous for its floral motifs and beautifully drawn Chinese motifs in deep red and blue on a light ground. The elaborate plants on the badan of this sarong, with their large blossoms and roots, were undoubtedly by the tree of life motif frequently found on chintz trade cloths from the Coromandel coast of India. The complex arrangement of the kepala and a very fine bow border running along the lower edge of the cloth made this sarong an exquisite festive garment.”
