Artist’ Statement
‘I began carving at school. I learnt from the old people that used to teach us for one hour every day at
school. I started at Tiwi Design in about 1994. I’ve been practicing and getting stronger with my craft
everyday. I like to carve Pukumani poles and I also carve tokampini (birds) that seem to be very popular
today. ‘ Mario Munkara
