Ngiya Jilamara means my design. All jilamara (design) is originally drawn from the body painting which accompanied the pukumani (funeral) and kulama (initiation/yam) ceremonies. All the artists living at Milikapiti are drawing on collective Tiwi memory, and the individual expression and aesthetic qualities of each artist’s work is reflective of their personal interpretation of traditional Tiwi design or jilamara.Sugar lift and aquatint etching, printed in three colours from three plates. Created during a workshop at Northern Editions in November 2005 with printmakers Dian Darmansjah and Leon Stainer, printed in 2006
