AFRICAN GAMEBOARDS, (MANKALA, MANCALA, WARI)

Despite their appearance, some of these gameboards might have been made to be sold.

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.
