This sarong is decorated with scenes from the fairy tale Snow White. The evil queen is depicted consulting her magic mirror, and shown offering a poisoned apple to the princess Snow White. The stricken Snow White lies on a bed surrounded - strangely - by five instead of the usual seven dwarves. Depictions of fairy tales on batiks were pioneered by Carolina von Franquemont, the earliest known European batik-maker. Little Red Riding Hood was perhaps the most favourite tale for batiks.
