Batik ActionThis women and the other two near her were lost in their art when I snapped this photo -- before noticing the crossed-out-camera icon on the wall beside me! (oops, and yes, I quickly stashed my camera away.) Karyaneka is a great place to catch batik painting and batik printing (with wood blocks), as well as traditional local woodcarving, in action. The artists are also friendly, and most are willing to answer questions about their work. Their wooden huts are located amidst lush greenery behind the modern front, which houses a small museum and several gift stores with all manner of Malaysian handicraft.
