Introducing the Animalia Chess Set. This hand carved metal edition brings an entirely new cast of characters to the 1,500 year old game of strategy, the animal kingdom is used as a narrative to illustrate the unique intricacies of chess and its workings. Meet the Giraffe King; tall and regal, yet flawed and vulnerable. The Queen Hen; who ruthlessly rules her house. The Fox Bishop; clever as he is sly. The gallant Knight; forever cavalier. The Rook; thick as brick and just as direct, and on the front line the Rhino Pawns; brutish brawn with more horn than brains.
