Buleleng Gets 19 Motifs of Endek Cloth

Buleleng Gets 19 Motifs of Endek ClothBuleleng Endek Carnival (BEC) does not only pose the resurrection for typical endek cloth of Buleleng, but also serves a means of documenting the motifs of North Balinese endek. Evidently, Buleleng is rich in the art and culture as proved to have 19 motifs of endek. All motifs have been documented and stored in the form of documentary film.

“The documentary film on the diversity of endek motif of Buleleng will be screened on August 9. It will be combined with the competition of kids fashion and office style fashion show in the event of the Buleleng Festival,” said Chairman of BEC Committee, Gede Suyasa, amidst the BEC preparation, Wednesday (Jul 30).

The documentary film entitled “Cinta di Selembar Endek: Selayang Pandang Endek Buleleng” or literally Love on a Piece of Endek Cloth: the Endek of Buleleng in a Nutshell is directed by filmmaker from Buleleng, Putu Satria Kusuma, who has won a series of awards at the Bali Arts Festival (BAF). The documentary film lasts for 19 minutes and 40 seconds.

Those motifs were found at four villages namely the Sinabun and Giri Emas village (Sawan subdistrict), Bondalem village (Tejakula) and Kalianget village (Seririt). Craftsmen of the four villages will be given their own booth in the Buleleng Festival organized on August 6 to 10, 2014.

Gede Suyasa said the documentary film was deliberately made in order the document on the typical endek of Buleleng was not only the static one. “The documentary film will be distributed to all relevant agencies (SKPD) that can be played in a variety of government activities, including exhibitions,” he said.
According to him, the documentation was very important to maintain the authenticity and quality of the typical endek of Buleleng. It was also meant to prevent the typical motif of endek owned by Buleleng from extinction. “Some of these endek motifs are no longer produced because it has been extinct,” he added.

Meanwhile, Putu Satria Kusuma revealed there were many motifs that had not widely known all this time. One of them was the lion motif of Kalianget village that was different from the motif of Singa Ambara Raja, the icon of Singaraja town. “It is said that the motif was found in the Dutch colonial era,” added Putu Satria.

Putu Satria described further about the findings of the 19 endek motifs in his research. Among the motifs, there were dobol kesitan, dobol mekirig, lion, steamer, sun, sekordi, ceplok, orchids, cegcegan, wayang Nagasepaha, tombak gongseng, grape leaves, diamonds, gempolan, temple dragon, frangipani, Singaraja and pitolo. “Some of the motifs have been threatened with extinction, such as the wayang Nagasepaha, temple dragon and lion motif,” he concluded.
