Ghana  (Africa)

Ghana is my renewed (formerly I thought Guinea-Conakry) estimate of the origin, based on Plain/III 2021. It is an exceptional large set. Note that I have put a Lego mini-figure of Robin Hood at the pictures to emphasize the huge size of this set. Note that the board (not part of set) in the pictures is over 60 by 60 cm, and it fits just! The set could have been made by Ashanti, although the antelopes as Knights have similarities with the figures with long graceful horns carved by the Bambara in Mali.

Ghana is my best estimate of the origin, based on the shape, the woods used and the way black colour is applied. The set could have been made by Ashanti.
