The themed chess pieces consist of the big five animals of Africa and baboon busts with a dark and light base for opposing sides. The animal chess pieces are molded from high-quality Polystone (resin & stone) that offers a smooth porcelain-like finish. The chess pieces are then meticulously hand-painted with incredibly fine detail by our talented African artists using only the best oil paints.
The solid, durable wooden African chess board is finished off with a beautiful hand painted Polystone frame
