Arung Salamiah

84 In x 108 In ( 213.5 x 274.5 cm ) Commissioned Mixed Media
Based on the legend of Arung Salamiah, the 5 panels piece is for the living hall of a tropical mansion, hanging 40 feet(14 metres) off the ground.

The figures were stylised in a stage-like backdrop, I wanted it to appear as in a drama.

With painted faces, glitter and expressive gestures, ornamented costume and spicy colors ,

portraying spirit of the Sea Gypsies of the East Coast Borneo, the Bajau Laut; and their colorful culture.
