If you like dragons you are going to love these chess pieces.
Once again, Italfama have excelled themselves with meticulous detail on these pieces. Based on dragons, warlocks and unicorns, the chess men are separated by colour - blue and green vs purple and red. The kings in this set are an intimidating dragon looking down from a fiery pedestal with his wings spread and large sword in his grasp. The queens too are dragons reading an old book.
The bishops are warlock type characters protecting their crystal balls whilst the rooks are smaller dragons but just as intimidating as the king. The pawns are wizards bearing a skull, but it is the knights in this set that are the most noteworthy, naturally portrayed as mystical unicorns.
We have matched these magical chess men with a stunning 16 inch walnut and maple board from Spain to give you The Fantasy Chess Set. With or without a board, these pieces will make a wonderful gift.
A genre of fiction, fantasy uses magic or other supernatural elements as the main theme. Many works of film or literature, within this genre take place in imaginary places with magical creatures. It tends to steer clear of science and the macabre found in science fiction and horror although there can be overlaps.
The fantasy genre is, in the main, of the medievalist form, however in its broadest sense, it also consists of works from legends and ancient myths to recent and popular works used by many artists, authors, filmmakers and musicians.
