African Malawi chess set

Size: 35cm (D)

A round wooden hand carved Malawi Chess set.

A beautifully African hand carved wooden chess set that has been hand carved in Malawi which is a small country in Southern Africa that is known for their well carved Ebony wood carvings. . The Malawi chess set is carved in a circular pattern with the center of the board in the 2 toned colored of the natural wood and surrounded by the darker wood. Around the square center the Malawi chessboard has abstract African animals and vegetation carved into the wood and sent in the natural colour. The Malawi chessboard is then smooth polished and shinned to the color of the wood.

The chess set is double sided with the chessboard one side and carved animals and patterns on the other side so the table top can be flipped and used wither side.Zulu chess pieces

The Chess pieces stand about 5 cm tall (2") and have been carved to the abstract form of the Malawi people with each piece representing a member of the Malawi tribal people.

Each Malawi chess set is an "original" work of art, individually handmade; no two are exactly alike which adds to the value of each piece. The original nature of tribal art will be reflected by variances from the Malawi chess set as shown, each piece of a specific style is similar, but not identical..
