This set is one of my favorites. Lots of research, lots of meaning to the pieces. Its about African Tribal Masks, all of the pieces are replicas of authentic masks. Each mask has its own specific significance. The meaning of each mask corresponds directly with the position it holds on the chess board. The masks are from all different tribes in Africa, the kings stand about 6” tall…pawns about 3” tall. The pawns are South African War Masks. Hand carved from solid Maple and Walnut. Chess board about 25” square also Maple and Walnut.
