Jilamara - Marie Carmel Kerinauia
Jilamara, Marie Carmel Kerinauia 650-04
Natural Ochre on Linen/Canvas, 80x60 cm
All jilamara (design) is 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.
