The Wavy Striped Motif backgammon is inspired by the Art of Embroidery, which is the craft of decorating fabric using a needle to apply thread or yarn. Ancient Greek mythology has credited the goddess Athena with passing down the art of embroidery along with weaving, leading to the famed competition between herself and the mortal Arachne. The playing field is a combination of Red veneer with black & Oak inlaid points. The design and colors of this trilogy of backgammon are created by Thenia.
This backgammon is handmade using the art of marquetry (also spelled as marqueterie) which is the art and craft of applying pieces of veneer to a structure to form decorative patterns and designs.
