A Malay Village In Melaka

A Malay Village In Melaka

Melaka is situated on the west coast of the Malaysia peninsular, 148 km south of the nation’s capital, Kuala Lumpur. Melaka was founded circa 1400 by Parameswara, a Srivijayan descendant. Melaka came to being an empire during the Sultanate reign and became a central power in Southeast Asia. Then, came the Portuguese and conquered Melaka in 1511. The Dutch in 1641. And the British in 1824.

As can be seen in this artwork, the Melaka house has integrated elements of Chinese architecture such as the stairs, located in front of the house. The stairs are made from bricks and mortar, while, the remaining structure are constructed from wood. The attap or roof are made from leaves of Nipah palms.

The artist has managed to capture the essence of village living that may not be visible anymore in this modern age.
