The Living Chess Set

I finally completed the Living Chess Set, all the pieces were made from living or once living objects. All pieces are made of solid lead free pewter, the board is etched glass that sits on a painted wood base.

King - Turkey leg bone
Queen - Milk Weed Pod
Bishops - Lobster Claw
Knights - Chicken Feet
Castles - Giant Garlic Stems
Pawns - My daughters finger (life cast in 2006)

The chess board is 14" x 14" square.  Purchaser has the option of either taking (rendered unusable) the rubber molds or having me destroy them ensuring the set will always be a one of a kind.  $2,800
