As a long time collaborator with WildAid I teamed up with Alexandra Llewellyn to do this handmade masterpiece. The design showcases my awe-inspiring whale shark photo series, which highlights the vulnerability of one of the ocean’s gentle giants alongside juxtaposed ethereal women.
This design was created to help raise awareness about wildlife conservation and is limited to an edition of 10 backgammon sets. 20% of each sale goes to this incredible charity.
The playing pieces are made with lapis blue and turquoise stones encased in brass. The box is Macassar ebony, and each board is numbered and signed by the photographer. 60cm x 77cm x 5cm / 23.5" x 30" x 2" when open Handmade in the UK
