Jilamara translates to design. Jilamara 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.

Parlini Jilamara means old design.
