This is my submission for the 2014 Calgary Stampede Western Art Auction, The Great Sioux Tribe versus The Great Crow Tribe Chess table.
The table is made from solid Cherry, Sapele, Maple, Poplar, Ambrosia Maple, and Poplar. The table measures 32” wide by 30” across by about 28” tall. The stand is made from Sapele CHerry and Poplar, and the is an eagle relief carved into both sides of the cherry slab on the pedestal.
Pieces are carved from hundreds of pics used in the research for this set. The Kings are not meant to portray any of the Great Tribal Chiefs. . Kings are about 2” by2” on the base and 8 to 9” tall. Buffalo pawns about 3” long by 2” wide by 4” tall.
Got lucky with that Cowboy set a few years back, interested in seeing how this table model will go over…...
Thanks for taking a peek
