A different perspective of the famous David statute of Michelangelo; this one is covered by a flowery layer of textile, reminiscent of traditional handmade brocade, commonly used for the baju kebaya, a customary women’s blouse. In this novel garb, Indonesian artist Titarubi uses David to explicitly express attributes of femininity.
