This charismatic turtle was handmade by the Bobo people of Burkina Faso, West Africa. A traditional Mancala gameboard is deftly hidden under the shell!
The 12 hole version of Mancala is common in West Africa. Stones or seeds are moved around the holes in an attempt to capture the other player’s pieces. Some Mancalas are plain, but often embellished with tribal iconography, as seen within this delightful example.
