SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CREATIONS.......
When I somethings, they hit me right in the heart. They stun me and I can't forget them. So I must have them near me to look at and admire and just make me feel so darn happy. I love Van Gogh's Sunflowers and adore Starry Night, I can't afford the original but I do have prints.
Well I saw this absolutely beautiful chess set done in the traditional colors and designs of the Polish, Ukrain, Slovak peoples and I had to have it. It was made in Poland and imported by Yellow Mountain. In exchange for this review and the privilege of promoting it, they gave it to me as a gift. I would have promoted it without them giving it to me. It deserves the public attention. It is a fine example of how one persons skill in carving, building, painting goes to market and if seen, is sold and becomes that creative person's income Please do check out Yellow Mountain http://www.ymimports.com Also sold on http://www.amazon.com/ymimports
The set is made of carefully carved birch. Light to the touch, but heavy enough for a professional chess player. Each piece is hand painted, the bottom red or blue to designate to whom the pieces belong. The pawns look like a line of beautiful Matryoskas or nesting dolls, all sisters of the same family with beautiful eyes and delicately painted lashes.Their dresses are the traditional dresses of their homeland.

The bishops have pointed hats that bishops sometimes wear. The rooks are like smoothly pointed wooden bullets Oh and what you have been waiting for, the Kings and Queens. The Queen is definitely direct relation to the pawns. She is beautiful, taller and dressed in royal attire with a thin gold ring around her head. The King, unmistakeably the King, with gold pointed crown and a sword in his hand.
