Hand-carved of ivory-colored onyx and brown marble, this chess set adds a touch of tradition and flair to your home. The Sierra Family of Mexico diligently work to create this timeless game, featuring a board with a brown marble border and alternating onyx and marble spaces for an excellent contrast.
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."

I received the Onyx and Marble Chess Set a few weeks ago. It is a stunning piece of every day art that I am so happy to have in our home!
