These chess pieces caught my eye when we were down on the Oregon coast. The focus is not even, but their looks and expressions were funny and perfect for Silly Tuesday.
Very fun chess pieces. Great capture for ST! :)

Excellent Don. A trifle confusing to play with I suspect though:)

I think this goes way beyond ST - that set is a true delight !

Someone had imagination when they made these chess pieces great shot :))

Don, now that looks like a fun chess set. You could probably even get kids to learn the game using this set. Well seen and captured. :-)

When I was a teen and a more serious chess player, I was offended by novelty chess sets. While I hardly play anymore, I still prefer to play with a standard set, but I can appreciate other artists' interpretation of the figures of the game. This has to be one of the more unusual interpretations I have seen. Were the black pieces wolves?

@Harry: Good question, Harry. Unfortunately, I don't recall their appearance.
Oh, they make one smile just to look at them!

Ils me font penser à une réunion du Conseil de Sécurité de l'ONU ...

A fun set, although I'm not sure it's that easy to see the difference between the pieces.

Maryhill Museum, on a bluff overlooking the Columbia near Goldendale, has an incredible collection of chess sets. Stop there sometime to see them--it would likely be not far off your route to the coast. You will be fascinated.
