Scope and Contents:
"Wari is the best-known African variation of mancala; apart from West Africa, where it is thought to have originated, it is popular in the Caribbean and South America and reached North America and Europe through various commercial introductions. Wari boards in West Africa have attracted attention for their sculptured shapes. They often include a stand or a base which may be decorated with incisions or which may be sculptured in motifs such as animals, people, a stool, or a boat." [Voogt, A., 2004: Wari; An African Folklore: an Encyclopedia. Routledge]. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon traveled to Africa from March 17, 1970 to July 17, 1970.
