Unique Auto Part Chess Set, 'Rustic Warriors'

Posted by GinaATX about 9 years, 3 months ago

NOVICA, in association with National Geographic, searches the world to work directly with the finest artisan designers. Heavy, rustic figures do battle on the chess field, conjured by Armando Ramirez's limitless imagination. Combining art and function, Ramirez sculpts each piece from automobile parts -- even the heads of the bishops are made of NGK and AC DELCO spark plugs! Voted the most creative chess set on Novica, this work is perfect for the chess lover that likes a rustic finish. It is important to note that the finish is rustic, as intended by the artist. The interior of the chess board makes a clanging sound from the moving of welded materials, and each of the pieces exhibits its own unique nature and finishing, depending on the auto part used. The knight, queen and king are particular favorites, finely tuned and sculpted, and the pawns made of heavy bolts and sprockets have a small and sturdy presence. Enjoy!
