May we present a unique set of chess with the Northern Vikings in noble battle. The Viking was, above all a successful merchant, but is still, according to the myths more known as a tough conqueror and combatant.

UNIQUE SCULPTURES
Sculptor IstvŠn Varga has developed his idea and designed the chessmen. Every single piece is modelled in clay to get the exact wealth of detail and trimming which characterize them. After firing, staining and polishing are done, every piece is dated and signed by the artist. The set consists of 32 seperate, handmade ceramic sculptures. The production began in the artist's studio in ÷ja in 1983, in the old island of the myths and Vikings - Gotland.
