The Kofi Tall Agudoawu Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geograhic. This beautiful piece... was handcrafted by Kofi Tall Agudoawu in Ghana. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase. A tasteful example of the talent of Kofi "Tall" Aguduawu, this oware table set is made of sapele wood. The Fanti name Dua Korkor refers to the beautiful color of this local material. Patiently carved, it is finished with linseed oil and wax. The game board is complemented with shiny beads made of recycled, non-toxic light-weight plastic. Oware is a game of skill and strategy designed for two players, challenging mental agility and alertness. It can be played by children as young as four years old, yet the game remains highly competitive among adults. The player's strategy entirely depends upon the ability for reasoning and counting. ; About the Artist: Kofi Tall Agudoawu; "After my secondary school education in 1979, I did a string of jobs. I was a school teacher, accounts clerk, store keeper, and hand pump installer on a national water project. In my spare time, I used to do voluntary work in small villages across the country. After I had run out of jobs and ideas, I walked into a friend's art studio at the National Cultural Center and told him, 'show me anything I can do around here, and I will do it,' not realizing that it was the beginning of a career. Then we received an order for carved oware games. In four weeks I had developed and mastered my own style. As my interest in the game deepened I engaged in research work. I wrote 'The Rules for Playing Oware' booklet, which I am glad to say, is a practical manual officially recognized by the Oware Society in London and Ghana. Features:Oware table Sapele wood construction Game board is complemented with shiny beads made of recycled Non toxic light weight plastic Oware is game of skill and strategy Designed for two players Challenging mental agility and alertness Played children Highly competitive for adults Hand crafted artisan quality Clean with a dry cloth The set includes a detailed playing manual Read More
