The Tiwi people of Bathurst and Melville Island, have a distinct culture and they share a visual language known as jilamara (design) based on the innumerable configurations of mulypinyini pwanga (lines and dots). These designs are individually conceived and may be used in ceremony, body painting and artworks.
Please note that despite our best efforts colourways shown on screen may not render with complete accuracy. Sample swatches are available.
