All jilamara (design) is originally drawn from the body painting which accompanied the pukamani (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 interpetration of traditional Tiwi design or jila.
