Animated film “Cio Tao” highlights the topic of Cio Tao ceremony; a maturity ceremony before marriage in Tionghoa Peranakan (Indonesian Chinese) ethnicity. The practice of this ceremony is getting more and more forgotten because people don’t know the moral meanings in every rituals of the ceremony. Those meanings are implied in the Tionghoa's (Chinese) properties used in the marriage ceremony. This paper interprets the decoration motifs and then implements the adaptation concept into the property design in the animated film “Cio Tao”. This paper uses qualitative method research to explain the relationship between the motifs’ meanings and shapes with the properties used. The design methodology was used to create this animated film. There are some modifications from cultural Tionghoa's visual pattern for designing property of the animated film. The visual adaptation of this study uses literature, existing visual pattern, and the Tionghoa's (Chinese) marriage ceremony properties observation as data for motif decoration conceptualization.
