A tale from the ancient city of Yogyakarta
Perfectly photographed, perfectly framed and a stuuningly attractive model. Please send me his address and phone number…hehehe! Can you tell me what he is wearing and if it has any special ceremonial significance?
hahaha thanks Isleworth. He’s wearing a Javanese cloth called batik. In the olden days, javanese wore this everyday, but actually the pattern (a modern version of ‘sidamukti’ – hope of glory) is strictly for Yogyakartan royal family. wrapped from waist to the ankle, tied with another long strip of cloth called stagen. ( well, you must find it difficult to pronounce 😛 ) Oh I can tell you long story about Indonesian traditions, custom and costumes, but that’s it for now. Haha.
The photo were taken at a sacred bathing pool, built circa 17th century AD or older.
Very nice shoot of a beautiful model. Like to work with Asian models like this one
the place is very cool too it gives a spiritual look, and it is very inspiring.
