Story behind the Art: 

The hand-carved games are crafted in Saharanpur in the region of Uttar Pradesh, India that is well-known for the ancient woodcarving techniques.   Temples in this region bear witness to the early talent of artisans in that region.  Today, the craft is still practiced using hand tools that are much the same.  

Game Summary: 

Snakes and Ladders is the classic children's race game but few people realise that it was originally a Victorian copy of an ancient Indian game based upon Hindu morality. The Indian game and the early Victorian versions of snakes and ladders had squares at the top of ladders designed with positive moral messages while the squares at the bottom of snakes showed examples of what can happen to those of bad virtue...

Due to the handmade nature, slight variations in size, color, shape, pattern, or other characteristics may be evident. Each piece is truly a unique work of art, lovingly crafted by hand.
