Abstract

This article discusses the results of the visual exploration of the Majapahit heritage in reliefs of Menak Jinggo Temple that is used as a source of visual ideas for the development of the current design of Batik Majapahit. The relief of Menak Jinggo Temple is appealing to be developed into a batik motif because of its artistic value and contains a unique visual characteristic of Majapahit style. The uniqueness of visual relief in the depictions of the Majapahit landscape and reliefs in separated panels give a complete picture of a scene that can be developed into a batik design. The design development is not only based on the visual of the past temple relief but also intertwined with creativity and the creative concept of modern designs. Specifically, this article will outline the creative process of exploring the visual of the relief of Menak Jinggo Temple into Majapahit Batik design.
