Abstract

The Minangkabau ethnic group is centred in the central highlands of the island of Sumatra. Minangkabau societies are matrilineal in descent and conceive of two customary (adat) philosophies. They are expressed as the ever-expanding world as an educator (Alam terkembang jadikan guru) and adat based on sharia, sharia-based on the Qur'an (adat basandi syarak, syarak basandi Kitabullah). These adat philosophies have produced hundreds of traditional decorative patterns. This study discusses on Minangkabau ornamental patterns. Their motifs and philosophical bases. This article addresses seven new ornate designs and seven batik motifs, which have been designed, patented and analyses their foundations in Minangkabau philosophy.
