About The African Animal Chess Set - Big 5 Busts

The themed chess pieces consist of the big five animals of Africa and baboon busts with a dark and light base for opposing sides. The animal chess pieces are molded from high-quality Polystone (resin & stone) that offers a smooth porcelain-like finish. The chess pieces are then meticulously hand-painted with incredibly fine detail by our talented African artists using only the best oil paints.

The solid, durable wooden African chess board is finished off with a beautiful hand painted Polystone frame

This African Big 5 themed chess set is made in South Africa by local artists and is shipped in a durable double walled box with dye cut foam insert

I had been interested in a chess board and African chess pieces since I had seen a similar Africa chess set at a friends office . Also I have been interest in Africa since my Uncle had lived there when I was young boy. The African chess set that I received was what I expected exceptional quality and fine craftsmanship. I am so pleased to display it for everyone to admire.

Review of African Animal Chess Set - Big 5 Busts

My 7 year granddaughter upon returning from her weekly tennis lesson remarked to her mother that wanted to learn chess. Her mother asked whom she knew that played chess. She replied, 'No One'. I decided that She needed a chess set. much, much later I chose the African animal one., knowing that she loved nature and animals. Thought her mother would have her hands full explaning the pieces and moves. But Charley is very bright and smart and could master all that.Sent her the chess set and a chess table with two chairs . she assembled the table and chairs together all by her self. and yrsterday she won a game with her mother. Charley amazes me.
