Central Post Office, Yogyakarta

This painting is about the big and classic central post office building in Yogya city, located at the 0km intersection.
Indonesia, as a country that was colonialized by Dutch, and
Yogyakarta which ever became the revolutionary capital city of the republic from 1946 to 1949 when Jakarta was still occupied by the Dutch, had been influenced at the architecture areas, esp. in the style of the governmental buildings.
Though the functions of the building were adjusted with the economic and development growth, but the heritage is still well preserved.
It was very interesting to learn about those buildings and pour it on a paper. It took quite sometime to understand the fragments of the central post office, also the detail decorations on its wall. I chose the beneficial angle too, the perspective that still included one of the beautiful tower of Bank of Indonesia building, frankly it looks more classic then.
