A new version of an ancestral game!
A hand-painted wooden chess board with ceramic pieces!
It is said that, during his captivity, Atahualpa, the last of the Incas, played intense chess matches with Francisco Pizarro, the conqueror.
Since then, this sport has been a very popular one in the continent.
This magnificent hand painted chessboard with ceramic pieces replaces the traditional black vs. white's opposition by an original recreation of the dispute between Spaniards and Incas.
The pieces show a high degree of detail in order to reflect the distinct appearance of the members of each side.
They can be stored using the same chessboard as a box.
*Chess pieces are about 8 to 12 cm in height, all made out wood and handpainted
