The painting

Two Greek or Franconian Ladies Sitting on a Divan and Playing Mancala (French: Deux dames grecques ou franques assises sur un divan et jouant au mankala'h) is a painting created by the Swiss miniaturist Jean-Etienne Liotard (1702-1789) in about 1740. It measures 14,8 cm x 21,7 cm and shows a mancala game played in the Levantine, probably Mandoli. Since 1882, the painting is owned by the French state. It is kept by the Louvre Museum in Paris, one of the world's largest museums and the most visited art museum in the world.
