ASANTE, GAMEBOARDS (MANKALA, Mancala, Wari), Ghana

These gameboards have been vetted as authentic but with little age or use.

Asante gameboards range from everyday objects with monumental, simple forms to ornate pieces bringing status to the owner. They often have a supporting structure similar to that of Asante stools. They all show the creativity and power Africans put into functional objects.
