This gorgeous chessboard is made of 26 pieces of cherry wood glued together with alternating grain structures and then laser engraved with my hand drawn design called Old Celts. Three animals (3 is a magical Celtic number): birds, dogs and snakes surround and interweave around the board.

The birds symbolize happiness - singing with joy, content to live in flocks and form long lasting relationships. This is portrayed on the board with the interweaving of their bodies and the eventual connection of every bird to every other bird.

The dogs are portrayed in a simpler fashion. Although their bodies interweave, they cross the board in straight lines ending with their tails free. This symbolizes a rejection of society but their dependence on others.

The snakes conjure up images of poison and bad encounters. They express the idea of karma, what goes around, comes around. Each snake bites on the tail of the snake ahead of him and eventually has his own tail bitten.

Included are the original hand carved, resin cast NOBLE CELTS chess pieces. I can convo you photos of additional pieces.

The squares measure 2" x 2" and can also use standard chess pieces. Each board is signed and numbered.
