An original batik painting on Belgian linen by artist Yvonne Cheng of a Hawaiian man carrying an umeke (bowl / calabash) in his arms. He's poised gracefully, wearing a haku lei (head lei). At almost 5 feet in height, it's a dramatic showpiece.
The painting is in excellent condition and has recently returned to Hawaii from a Honolulu collector who originally purchased it from the artist and years later, left the islands. The artist, Yvonne Cheng, has not created batik paintings for several decades because she did not like the health hazards of the chemicals involved in the batik process. Her batik paintings on linen are rare and we're proud to be able to present this offering for sale.
