1960s Javanese Batik

My in-laws spent the mid-1960s to early 1970s in medical service on the
Indonesian island of Java. My mother-in-law returned to the US with a
collection of high-quality batik. A few days before leaving Virginia, I
spent a few hours scanning sections of some of her collection. I wish I
could scan the entire cloth so you could get the full effect. What you see
here are the small sections that fit on a standard 8.5×11 scanner.

Enjoy!
