32 alabaster and resin handmade and hand painted chess pieces depicting the Cowboy and the Indians of the American Far West, two populations unmistakable hallmarks.
For sure one of the most curious chess sets, for which we can say that the craftsman is really indulged.
Among the Cowboys chess pieces the King is marked by the inevitable hat, boots, gun and jacket with fringes, while the Queen is known for soft robes, the same boots and the gun. The piece of the tower is shown in the wood as the typical constructions of the villages of the West that we learned about in Western movies.
The antagonists of the cowboys on the board are Indians, the Native Americans, all with their jet black hair: the King with the big feather headdress that distinguishes him as the village chief and his wife the Queen, with the typical braids. The piece of the tower is shown here as a totem, typical of the villages of Native Americans.
