Vintage Game Boards

c.1950; Parcheesi Game Board from a house in Bucks County, PA. 



The Indian board game known as Parcheesi is one of the oldest in the world. The "pilgrim," beginning at one of the four entrances, strives in the contest to arrive at the center -- finding the self. The relation to the mandala and sacred space is physical as well as visual.
