"Ce tissu présente une combinaison de motifs de figure anthropomorphique (buah engkeramba) et de serpents stylisés (buahnabau). Selon Traude Gavin, engkeramba se traduit par modèle, poupée ou encore sculpture sur bois. Le motif particulièrement ancien est sans doute mis en valeur par l'ajout de bleu indigo sur le corps des personnages. Ce textile présente de magnifiques motifs en bordure et des teintures naturelles."


"This cloth has a combination of anthropomorphic figure (buah engkeramba) and probable stylised serpent (buah nabau) patterns. According to Traude Gavin, engkeramba translates as model, doll or wood carving. The design is an old one, no doubt enhanced by the addition of indigo blue to the bodies of the figures. This textile has good border patterns and natural dyes." Thomas Murray
