Seen in picture I, where Sri Mulyani was given a surprise birthday in 2016, she wore a large curigo patterned batik dress. Curigo can be interpreted as a dagger, where the meaning of the whole curigo machete motif is calm and intelligence. This interpretation in person is very suitable to be attached to the intelligent character of Sri Mulyani because she has been chosen several times as minister, and her calm and calm nature when talking.
