Xmas Ball - approx. 8cm dia
Handmade Xmas Decorations using recycled paper, traditional, hand-painted and lacquered Kashmiri handicrafts are united with Aboriginal designers. Each decoration comes with its own tag about the Artist and the design.
During Ceremony on the Tiwi Islands a series of “Yoi”, dances are performed, some are totemic (matrilineal) and others act out newly composed songs. Participants are painted with turtiyanginari (natural ochres) transforming the dancers and protecting them against mapurtiti (spirits). These designs are collectively called Jilamara.
