Description

All jilamara (design) are originally drawn from the body painting which accompanied the pukumani (funeral) and kulama (initiation/yam) ceremonies. An individual design and aesthetic is highly valued by Tiwi artists and is representative of their personal interpretation of the traditional Tiwi design or jilamara. This is a multi-plate etching with screenprint made by the artist in collaboration with Masterprinter Basil Hall at Jilamara in April 2017.
