The Kulama Ceremony is performed in the late wet season (March-April) when a ring appears around the moon. Kulama is a traditional initiation for young men which coincides with the harvest of a certain wild yam species. Elders of both sexes sing and dance for three days welcoming the boys into adulthood. The boy is then renamed with his true man’s name.

Etching, lift ground aquatint in one colour. Drawn by the artist, printed by Martin King at Australian Print Workshop, Melbourne.
