My son, Matthew, just completed this chain maille chess set. He has spent approximately 500 hours over the past 2 years creating the individual chess pieces and chess board. The rings are aluminum, copper and black anodized aluminum. The framed artwork is approximately 24"x46".
He is extra creative and decided to frame the chess board to save table space. The shelves are glass and he hand polished the edges smooth.
He has this at his office and there is a continual chess game going amongst his co-workers.
This is truly an beautiful and unique piece of functional artwork. Not bad for an aerospace engineer ( aka rocket scientist!!)
