McDougall Chasuble - Gold
This Chasuble is another series of vestments fusing the elements of South East Asian by using Songket ( Cloth of Gold of Malay ) with an English pattern orphrey. This is to commemorate the event of the early missionary work of the late bishop Francis Thomas McDougall.
Inculturation in South East Asia has open the door of creativity in many ways, such as liturgical arts.
Songket is one of the best fabric in my opinion to depict the beauty of cloth of gold in South East Asia. Very often it is weaved with geometry or floral pattern.
