Uli culture.

Uli culture. The uli culture is associated with the Igbo ethnic group in Nigeria. As an Igbo Nigerian woman, Uli is close to my heart. In Igboland, Uli was a feminine form of art and graphic communication. Uli is described as either a body,wall, or mural paintings. The more appropriate word to describe the process of painting would be writing or drawing since there were no brushes for painting then. Uli symbols used by Igbo women artists represent things of physical importance and were meant to beautify the female body as beauty was equated with morality in the Igbo culture.
