You are buying a unique, hand painted, unmounted wax resist Batik Canvas Panel - Image size 16" (40.5cm) x 5 1/2" (14cm).
It has a base of black cotton fabric and has a waxy residue as expected of this native South African Art work.
These batik are great for adding your own embellishment by machine or hand, using as a centre piece for patchwork/quilting or simply for framing, hanging and enjoying!
My husband travels often to Africa on business and I am sometimes lucky enough to go with him. On my visits I meet these wonderful artists personally, barter with them over the price of these paintings in the open roads and country markets, ensuring they were given a fair price for their originality and hard work. They have enormous talent, great personalities and huge smiles!
The batik art generally represents everyday life in Africa.
Each one is unique (i.e. the only one of its kind in the world) and has been signed by the artist - MUJOVE.
I hope you enjoy and can use their work in your own products as we do.
