MANO, GAMEBOARD (MANKALA) (Mancala, Wari)1, 6"x 25", $300, Liberia

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. This Mano gameboard is similar to those of the neighboring Dan, but without the carved heads.

Despite its appearance, this gameboard might have been made to be sold.
