The national game of Madagascar, Fanorona is played with black and white pieces on a diagonally gridded board. In the 19th century, diviners used the game to predict current and future events. Some would scratch the pattern in dirt, using stones, beans or even berries for pieces. Our small-scale printed rendition has the impression of being etched into the weave itself.
