The Kulama ceremony occurs towards the end of the wet season (March/April) when a ring appears around the moon. It is a celebration of life and involves three days and nights of ritual body paintings, singing and dancing complete with the eating of yams according to a ritual custom. Concentric circles often appear as the main element of contemporary Tiwi patterns, representing the Kulama circle or ceremonial dancing ground.
In this work the Tiwi tradition of wood carving has translated well into this style of printmaking. Editioned 18/20.
