Go Sightings

This will be a page of interesting items from the world of the game of go. From time to time there are some very interesting items that are exhibited online only for a short period of time such as when they are being sold or auctioned. For go enthusiasts, it’s a real loss not to be able to see these items anymore. Therefore I will try to show off some of the most interesting items I happen upon from time to time and share these images and moments with you all. Some of these items will be from my own collection.
