The Royal Game of Ur
A beautifully crafted 'Royal Game of Ur', made from solid oak and walnut wood, complemented by circular totems (seven walnut and seven oak hand embellished with red and blue painted pips). The symbols on the board draw inspiration from the Sumerian Goddess, Star of Ishtar. Branded by hand, they symbolise safety for the totem that lands on it (also granting the player another role of the dice).
