Red Clouds in the Sunset
Sabrina - Chapter 1, Kain
Know by the traditional Indonesian name - Mega Mendung - the Mighty Clouds, is a hand-drawn Batik pattern from the city of Cirebon, in West Java.
It is a traditional pattern which holds much symbolism dating back to the 16th century when the Sunan Gunungjati (King) married Queen Ong Tien from China, heralding the new beginning that merged much of two cultures - the Javanese with the Chinese. Thus, giving rise to the design of the Mega Mendung, The Mighty Clouds.
Traditionally the pattern has 7 colour gradations - representing the 7 layers of heaven, 7 layers of the Earth, and 7 days in a week.
In keeping with modernity, this Batik hand-drawn pattern has simplified, working with between 3 to 4 colour gradations with brighter colours of yellow, red, orange, green and others used in its interpretation, making it more fashionable.
