Guinea Conakry   (Africa)

Guinea-Conakry (Republic of Guinea) set that is better than average to African standards. Nice board as well. Seller told me that he had let this set made after a historical example located in a museum in Conakry. It was made in 1994 by the artist Amadou Diallo from Guinea. Not sure whether his story is true of course 😉
