Yaure Mankala Game Board


The game of mankala, though widespread, is played more particularly in West Africa. It involves moving pawns on a board with two rows of six holes. The goal is to capture the pawns in the opposite row. The pawns can be made out of seeds, cowries, pebbles or pieces of metal. Many ethnographic collections have mankala games, which are fine works of art. 

This particular Mankala is a real find: the board is held by two carrier figures and it also has a lid. The carved lid with a massive handle closes the game board. And then the entire object becomes a statue group of two carriers holding a nice oval container.
