Board, dice, and 24 obsediant game pieces
PATOLLI is an ancient Mesoamerican game of chance and betting.
During the pre-Columbian era, it was practiced by the Teotihuacanos, Toltecs, Mayans, Aztecs.
It’s design may vary depending on the region, but its meaning will always be related to the calendar.
The intention was to create a board game that was entertaining and culturally valuable, while maintaining its sculptural beauty to be used as decoration.
Traditional materials such as volcanic stone, wood, and obsidian were used to maintain a connection to their roots and at the same time provide an attractive visual with its materiality and contrast.
