Ubi Girl from Tai Region

by Loïs Mailou Jones (American, 1905–1998) "Ubi Girl from Tai Region" depicts a young woman from the Tai Region of Liberia whose face is painted for the initiation into womanhood. Jones suggests the unification of Africa in this work by displaying two Congolese masks and the profile of a great fetish from the Ivory Coast alongside her Liberian model. This work symbolizes Jones's reclamation of her African heritage following a trip she took to Africa when she was in her sixties.
