Parlini Jilamara. This is olden days Paintings. Long ago in the early days we put Yalinga (red ochre), Arrikininga (yellow ochre) and tutuyangini (white ochre) on our face and body for Pukumani (fineral) and Kulama (Yam) ceremonies. The bars going across are the Jilamara (body Paintings) we put across our stomach and chest. Sometimes we still do this.
