This gameboard has been vetted as authentic, with signs of use and age.

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.
