Cycladic civilization is the most ancient in Europe and it flourished in the Aegean Sea during the 3rd millennium B.C. Their marble art was highly stylized representations of the human form with minimal geometric lines which gives them a striking resemblance to today’s modern art.

The King represents a strong male figure with minimal broad shoulders whereas the idol of Queen is devoted to the most significant period in a woman’s life, pregnancy. The Bishop figure has indicative lines with hands under chest and legs together. The Knight is a horse from the war of Troy, found on the bas-relief decoration of a vase in Mykonos Island. The Castle is a replica of the massive 2500-year old marble temple entrance, which is still the landmark of Naxos Island. Finally, the Pawn is the head of the most known marble idol of this period.

The handcrafted classic brass and metallic chessboard, in gold and dark blue colours, compliment these chess pieces perfectly and sets the scene for an epic battle. 

Comes complete in a wooden box with storage for pieces and board. Packed in a beautiful Manopoulos gift card box.

Size of the board: 44cm x 44cm with 4.5cm squares
Height of the King: 85mm, base 24mm
Weight of the set: 8kg
