Raelene Kerinauia  from Pickataramoor, Melville Island in the Tiwi Island group, paints her personal creative expressions using traditional comb methods from that region. "It's imagination but it's not new."   They reflect designs used for Tiwi pukumani (funerary) poles, comb painting is also a method used for ceremonial face and body painting.
