Rare Tall African Islamic Teaching Board TANZANIA Early to Mid 20th Century
March 24, 2020
Rare Tall African Islamic Teaching Board – TANZANIA – Early to Mid 20th Century. Another African artifact from my personal collection. Tall and unusual example of a teaching board from Zanzibar, off the coast of Tanzania. The population in this area is 99% Islamic. I have never seen one with the abstract design of the head at the top and legs depicted at the bottom. Nice patina and wear from use. Probably used by a teacher, due to size. Custom black painted steel stand holds piece firmly upright. Last photo shows a similar, newer example in the British Museum. Not a tourist piece, but a genuine African artifact. 48 Inches tall 6 Inches Wide Custom Stand 7 x 7 Inches.
