Magnificently detailed themed figurative chessmen from Studio Anne Carlton of England. This emblematic portrayal encapsulates the that historical religious conflict that stretched over hundreds of years. The chessmen depict specific crusades that restored Christian authority of the Holy Land between 1095 and 1291. Fabricated from a special crushed stone composite material and hand painted, the extent of detailing is superlative. Each side depicts the two adversaries - Christian forces and Muslim warriors. With a king's base diameter of 3.6 cm these pieces could be combined with an 50cm board. However, due to their height we suggest a 55cm wide board to retain good proportions.
