CROSS CULTURAL PROJECT - Kar-e-Kalamdani is the local name for paper mache - a a Kashmiri cottage industry introduced to the Karmir Valley in 15th century. There are many steps in the process - creating pulp from recycled paper - molding and finishing the shapes - handpainting and varnishing
Story: 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.
