Many don’t know that the animals that make up the “Big 5” were not chosen due to their size but rather due to their ferocity as well as the high degree of danger involved in hunting them. This chess set, based on the majestic “Big 5” is a superior-quality collector’s item and has been sculpted from hand-designed moulds and features the lovingly carved heads of these noble beasts in all their glory.
Careful attention to detail has produced a truly unique themed chess set for chess connoisseurs of all ages to enjoy. Constructed from exotic Kiaat, Koto or Maple wood, these chess boards tell a story of survival and conquest in the African Wilderness.
All pieces in this unique chess set were sculptured in-house, are produced from custom made hand-designed moulds, followed up with hours of the finest attention in hand-painted colouring, with a focus on intricate detail, to give life to the animals of this African theme. The tallest chess piece in the collection is the majestic Lion, coming in at 90mm with all the chess pieces having a base diameter of 30mm. This fits perfectly on the 50mm2 chess squares on our ground stone chess board. As always great care has been taken to neatly and securely package the chess sets to prevent damage while shipping.
