This reminiscent original sketch is concocted by Kelantanese batik painting master, Ismail Mat Hussin. His expertise is bringing the traditional Malay living norms to life through his arts and crafts rendered in mosaic-like compositions. This sketch however, departs from the former, featuring a group of Malay ladies convened and in the works of something or rather. A lady in the foreground is eye-catching, looking over the other ladies in a relaxed, seating position.
