Backgammon Set - Inlaid Turquoise
This beautifully presented marquetry backgammon set will make the perfect gift.
The "Turquoise" backgammon is inspired by the minimalist movement. Minimalism is an extreme form of abstract art developed in New York in the 1960s and typified by artworks composed of simple geometric shapes based on the square and the rectangle. Aesthetically, minimalist art offers a highly purified form of beauty. It can also be seen as representing such qualities as truth (because it does not pretend to be anything other than what it is), order, simplicity and harmony. The design and colours of this trilogy of backgammon are created by Joan M.
