The Knight in this design originates from the Horse of Selene and is from the east pediment of the Parthenon in Athens, a temple from ancient Greece famed for its incredible marble sculptures. The horse originates from the Acropolis in Athens and dates to 438-432 BC.

The sculpture captures the very essence of the enervation felt by a beast that has spent the night drawing the chariot of the moon goddess across the sky. The horse pins back its ears, the jaw gapes, the nostrils flare, the eyes bulge, veins stand out and the flesh seems spare and taut over the flat plane of the cheekbone.

A handsome home gift inspired by ancient Greece

King Height 4.5" 

Weighted and felted bases

Hand carved 

Attention overseas customers: Please note that your order may be subject to customs taxes, which must be paid directly to your governing tax office.

In the realm of hand-carved products, it's essential to acknowledge that the artistry involved in crafting chess pieces and related items by hand can lead to unique variations. The use of wood, being a natural material, inherently results in differences in color, shade, and tone.

Furthermore, please keep in mind that the hand-carving process may introduce subtle differences between individual pieces within a set, adding to their individual character.

Additionally, for transparency, we want to clarify that the use of veneer is exclusive to our chess boards and boxes. All other items, including chess pieces and related accessories, are crafted from solid wood unless explicitly stated otherwise in our listings. This distinction is made to ensure compliance with CITES regulations governing lumber species while maintaining the exceptional quality and craftsmanship of our hand-carved products.

Hand-Carved Products Disclaimer:

  • Variations in Wood: Due to the natural and inconsistent nature of wood, expect variations in color, wood tones, shade, and tone.
  • Artistic Hand-Carving: Hand-carved products may exhibit subtle differences between individual pieces, enhancing their unique character and wood variance.
  • Approximate Weights and Sizes: Provided weights and sizes are approximate guides, considering the handmade nature of our products.
  • Chess Boards and Boxes: Unless explicitly labeled as "solid wood," chess boards and boxes are made with veneer to comply with CITES regulations. Other items are crafted from solid wood for quality and compliance.
