Selamat datang.
Fascinated all my life already by Indonesian art and culture overall. Love in particulair the dance culture. Have learned lots about that from my second father and mother. This is a drawing with pastel crayons of a Javanese dancer purely fantasy. Based on dance performances I saw live on Pasars Malams(Indonesian markets and festivals in Holland).
