BEWARE OF THE BEAST
LIMITED EDITION GAME SET

Created by Jamiyla Lowe and limited to a highly collectable edition of 100, each Beware of the Beast game set features:

• Box: 12″x12″x1 1/4″ black leatherette paper, gold acryilc stamp
• Game Board: 24 x 24″ dye sub printed on liba matte fabric (cotton poly)

Originating in India and later popularized in Victorian England, Snakes and Ladders was a board game that often taught morality lessons. These games were historically hand painted and designed by artists with each interpretation having the same rules apply, while the imagery varied by being culturally specific to where and when it was produced. Using themes and imagery consistent with her work and working within the parameters of the game, Lowe has created an art multiple that is instantly recognizable as an iconic game board while bearing the distinctive mark of her original character design and illustrations. Produced as an edition of 100 sets, each game is hand printed on fabric acting as both an art print and a game board and is accompanied by all necessary components for proper game play.

Purchase through the gallery or online at Magic Pony.
