Flowers blossom among a pink fantasy of traditional Javanese batik patterns, in a silk scarf by Yuni Kristina. The dagger-like motif is known as parang, and once could only be used at the Surakarta and Jogyakarta courts. The kawung is an eight-pointed rosette set within a square, rhombus or circle, formerly reserved for the sultan's use.
