A superb example of an aristocratic Kalianda tampan with rich resonate colors and a fine design content. Note the separation of foreground motifs and open background providing a clear connection to the symbolically great ship. The gracefully rounded shape of the hull reflects a meditative sense of transference from one realm to another with ease. This boat floats!
