This board is all hand painted, inspired in some old churches glasses and images of the medieval times.
This was my first chess, and i have always love the history, and the past times, the casttles, the medieval paintings, among many other things. So I've decided to do my own version of the "Moorish against Christians".
These like the other chess sets has been exhibited in the William Spratling Museum, at the City of Taxco, Gro., here in Mexico.
This hand painted board is inspired in the Roman paintings of tiles. It was really difficult for me to do all the tiles to achive that effect. I hope you enjoy it!
Este tablero fue inspirado en las pinturas Romanas, hechas de pequeños mosaicos. Fue realmente un reto el poder realizar ese efecto. Espero lo disfruten!
This chess set is inspired in the old movie "Cleopatra", when I first saw it I was a little girl, and the image of a strong young Queen, seems very powerfull to me.
My chess set was born with the inspirations of this passionate story of war and love, between Cesar and Cleopatra.
