Chess has long been a game emphasizing the owner’s status. From ancient times, it was the prerogative of sheikhs and persons of the king’s blood. So in ancient Rome, Egypt, China, France and Russia, this game was taught from childhood, as it perfectly developed the mind, logical thinking and memory.
Chess is small – 36 x 36 cm. The pieces are cast from metal and plated with nickel and gold. When gilded, the pieces are less susceptible to aggressive external influences, oxidation and corrosion. The usual pieces of the king, knight and others are replaced by the sculptures of mythology of Ancient Greece, such as Zeus, centaurs.
As an ornamental material for the manufacture of a monolithic chess board, natural stone was selected: white marble, black serpentine marble and krenoid which is a type of marble with a high content of iron oxide (hence its pinkish tint). This ornamental stone relieves fatigue and has a beneficial effect on the human body.
