"Crazy Gorgeous Art"

This is incredible. The carving is awesome. This is an art piece and even if you dont play the game would recommend ordering as it gives an air of sophistication to the room it is in. Cant imagine anyone not being impressed with this piece.

"The pieces were a disappointment!"

Hello Mr Ketut, My compliments on the excellent craftsmanship in making this chess! The board is very beautifully hand crafted and we just loved it. However we were little disappointed when we opened the pieces. The carving is not very clear and the finishing is ok. The pieces are too light weight and therefore doesnt give you the feel of good quality. Only if the pieces were done as well as the board then it would have indeed been a cherished heirloom!

"Absolutely magnificent"

Finely carved and finished. Peices are playable and definitely in character to the Hindu story it depicts of the Ramayana epic.
