Product Description

  • Presented with a beautiful Walnut and Maple board.
  • Beautifully crafted in Italy.
  • Painstakingly hand painted.
  • 3.25 inch king.
THE PIECES
At first glance, the 'Evil' pieces are beautifully and elegantly clothed but skeletal faces and hands reveal their true identity. A formidable, dagger bearing king leads this macabre army with his beautifully ornate but equally skeletal queen at his side.

A gnarled wizard type character, carrying a skull, represents the bishop whilst a scary gargoyle looking character plays the knight. With skulls in abundance, the Rook is an eerie castle and the pawns are grisly looking creatures exhibiting a mace and an axe.

Not based on any particular character in history, The ‘Good’ pieces have a King Arthur look about them. Draped in a luxurious red cloak, the King is a tall and regal character adorned with an ornate crown on his head and large sword in his hand. His queen is elegant and beautifully dressed

With his long white beard, the bishop has a look of Merlin about him, whilst the knight is a fierce looking dragon. The detailed cliff top castle makes for an excellent rook and the pawns are beautifully uniformed soldiers dressed in chain mail with shield and sword at the ready.

The Good vs Evil Themed Chess Men are also available without the board but either way, makes for a superb gift.

THE HISTORY
The clash between good and evil is one of the precepts of the 3000 year old Zoroastrian faith which is one of the world’s oldest religions.

A common theme in literature, Good vs Evil is also considered to be a generic part of the human condition, between individuals or ideologies or the inner struggle.

A person will inevitably see himself doing the ‘just ‘thing’ whilst, just as inevitably, another will say they are doing wrong.

If in doubt, good is something which will not hurt anyone but evil does.

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.
