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.

This is a hard ground etching with aquatint and chine collection, made by the artist in collaboration with Masterprinter Basil Hall
during a print workshop at Jilamara in April 2017.
