Depicting the higher ranks of Japanese culture, this Oriental themed chess set
has the look and feel of age carved into it! The pawns are representative of the
eight wise men regarded by the Oriental cultures, and give the set an air of wisdom
far beyond a normal chess set! Set in the time of Medieval Japan, the ranking
members of society are standing at mute attention, awaiting the beginning of the
ultimate duel--a mental war and a physical defeat of the army!
The king or shogun, the queen, and the royal advisers are resplendent in robes
and ceremonial dress. Providing protection for them are the horsemen and pagoda
castles, a combination which is hard to beat! With the pawns so wise, the soldiers
so brave, the royalty so fine, who can the winner be?
Identical to the Oriental Color chess set with a natural finish, but with brilliant
colors, this beautiful set could come from Japan itself! The elegant and artistic
coloring covers the chessboard with figures of eye-catching hues, and make the
set itself a rare treat! The red ranks have deep red and yellow tones set upon
them, and make a perfect contrast to the blue side: the blue's have deep and
cloudy blue colorings making them striking and attractive chessmen themselves!
Set off the room with this elegant cultural set, or make it the conversation
piece for the office! Uses are as diverse as the games you're sure to enjoy--your
challenge over this board is sure to be taken up by any avid player!
