Sugar lift etching, printed in three colours from three plates at Northern Editions 2006. Old 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.
