Black and white define a clear-cut triumph as opponents take to the chessboard. The Sierra family crafts the chess set from natural onyx and marble, polished to perfection.
Because each piece is sculpted individually, there may be slight variations in the color and pattern of the stone.
Sierra was diagnosed with Polyneuropathy when she was 40 years old, which is a condition in which a person’s peripheral nerves are damaged. She had experienced 15 years of suffering, yet through her struggle she never gave up and always found a way to rise above her diagnosis. She has astounded everyone that had the opportunity to be in her presence because even though she had been paralyzed, she exemplified strength and the healing that comes from remaining positive through misfortune. She calls her recovery, "a miracle of God."
