THE PIECES
Once again, Italfama have excelled themselves with meticulous detail on these pieces.

Love dragons? You are going to love this set then as it is mainly based on dragons with the odd warlock, wizard and unicorn thrown into the mix. The chess men are separated by colour - blue and green vs purple and red - which work well together and just add to the whole fantasy feel.

An intimidating dragon looking down from a fiery pedestal with his wings spread and large sword in his grasp can be no other than the King Dragon together with his Queen who is reading an old book. A warlock type character protecting his crystal ball represents the bishop whilst the rooks are smaller dragons but are just as intimidating as the king. Wizards with skulls make up the pawns but the most noteworthy are the knights in this set - naturally portrayed as mystical unicorns.

The beautiful 15.75 inch walnut and maple board from Spain displays these pieces perfectly however The Fantasy Themed Chess Men are available without the board. Either way, this makes for a superb gift.

THE HISTORY
The fantasy genre of fiction uses magic or other supernatural elements as the main theme. Many works, be it film or literature, take place in imaginary worlds with magical beings. It tends to avoid science and the lurid tendencies found in science fiction and horror although there can be overlaps.

Mainly based in the medievalist form is, the fantasy genre also consists of works from legends and ancient myths to more recent collections used by many artists, authors, filmmakers and musicians.

Please note that as these pieces are hand painted, there may be some inconsistencies in the level of detail and colour and therefore your pieces may be very slightly different from the images shown. Any inconsistencies however are minimal.
