Ashanti Awale game board

€750.00

Royal Ashanti art

The very prolific artistic body of Ashanti is known among other things for its very finely sculpted ceremonial stools composed of a foot surmounted by a curved seat. This awale or mancala game board rests here on a stand of the same style. The shape of this foot evokes a local proverb or a symbol of wisdom. This piece is quite unique because the awales are generally flat planks devoid of a foot or with one not so masterfully carved. The piece shows good signs of wear.

This piece comes from an English collection. Item reported in 1960 from Ghana.
