Abstract

The traditional art of North Sumatra has begun to disappear and the efforts to preserve it has not shown serious steps. Therefore, it is necessary to take measures aimed at preserving this traditional culture. One of the steps that can be taken is researchers conducted a revitalization of ornaments with digitalization techniques. The change from the manual method (drawn and carved) was then developed into corel draw program and printed on albatross media. Printed images and accompanying information can be pasted to decorate decorative items. In this study, the ornaments applied were from Batak Toba and Malay ethnic. The application of ornaments to decorate decorative flower pot is also functioned as an interior element. It is hoped that this method will be quite effective in re-socializing the traditional ornaments of North Sumatra to the younger generation.
