May Allah accepts from you and us, and may we be tha part of the people who return to purity and the people who are granted victory.
Well, about the stuffs on the Javanese alphabet that reads Sugeng Riyadi
and the greeting, من العاءدين و الفاءزين , I've already explainded in the artwork for Eid 1433H (2012)
Well, that's 6 years ago
I actually used a lineart that was planned for Eid 1434H as the base for this one, so I've got to fix it here and there, although it still looks rough in some areas. But rather than letting it stay as WIP forever, it is better to just use it now
So, what's the deal with those diamond-shaped green stuffs?
It is called ketupat
in Indonesian, or kupat
in Javanese. It is a dumpling made from rice packed inside a pouch made from janur
, woven young leaf of coconut palm. In Indonesia, ketupat is highly associated to Eid-ul Fitr day. Some kind of a must-have (or must-serve, or must-eat! ^^ ) on the day, served as staple food, as the replacement of plain steamed rice.Kupat
comes from "ku" (from the word ngaku
, admitting) and "pat" (from the word lepat
, mistake), meaning admitting one's mistake
, in accordance to the tradition of halal bi halal
, asking forgiveness and forgiving others' wrongdoings, during and several days after Eid al-Fitr Day.
