In 2012, Rose-chan appears in the traditional costume of a Balinese dancer.
Her kain batik (traditional skirt) is adorned with intricate patterns, made by hand using a wax-resistant dyeing technique. A pelangi (sash) is draped elegantly around her waist, and her wrists, neck and head are adorned with opulent, intricate golden jewellery and headdress.
Her fingers are delicately extended, pointing, flexing and fluttering in accordance with time-honoured traditions.
