GAMEBOARD (MANKALA) (Mancala, Wari) 1,
35" long x 8" wide x 4.5" high,
There are small areas of wood loss on the back side and a large, but stable crack on the bottom.
The gameboards range from everyday objects with monumental, simple forms to ornate pieces bringing status to the owner. They all show the creativity and power Africans put into functional objects.
