Synopsis

Kanchil the mouse deer and his friend, Monyet the monkey, plant some trees and look forward to eating their fruit. When they are finally ripe, Monyet climbs the trees to pick them. But once he gets up there, Monyet can't resist eating all the fruit by himself - and Kanchil can't resist getting even. A deft and humourous re-telling of one of the best-loved tales in Indonesian folklore, Mangoes and Bananas features exquisite art in the traditional Kalamkari style of textile painting from southeast India.
