With Michelangelo's David this is certainly a set that should be a must to all those interested in art, the classics and of course, chess.
• David as the King
• Aphrodite as the Queen
• A Chinese Sage as the Bishop
• A Classic Roman Horse's Head as the Knight
• Rodin's 'The Thinker' as the Rooks
• Lions as Pawns
This is a very good sized and hefty set which can easily be used as a display piece and retails elsewhere for over $215.00.
Each set is hand cast from quality reformed stone, detailed, stained, and glazed to give a durable high quality result yet still retaining a satin antique finish.
The king approx 6 inches in height with a base of 2 inches and the set, unpacked, weighs approx 3.2 KG and would suit a board, not included, with squares 2 inches or more. The board pictured has 2.25 inch squares.
Each piece is individually wrapped in bubble wrap and then the whole set. This is then packed in a sturdy cardboard box into which is packed polystyrene peanuts for extra padding.
