The Zulu chess set is carved in a circular pattern with the center of the board in the 2 toned colored of the natural wood and surrounded by the darker wood. Around the square center the Zulu chessboard has abstract African people and items such as the carved into the wood and all finished off to the natural images of African vegetation. The Zulu chessboard is then smooth polished and shinned to the color of the wood. Zulu chess pieces

The Chess pieces stand about 5 cm tall (2") and have been carved to the abstract form of the Zulu people with each piece representing a member of the Zulu tribal people. African Zulu chess pieces.

Each Zulu chess set is an "original" work of art, individually handmade; no two are exactly alike which adds to the value of each piece. The original nature of tribal art will be reflected by variances from the Zulu chess set as shown, each piece of a specific style is similar, but not identical..
