The exquisite Ancient Egypt Hand painted themed chess pieces by Italfama are a must-have for any collector. Upon opening the box, one is immediately drawn to their opulent and unique look, with both sides featuring intricate gold and black patterns inspired by ancient Egyptian artifacts. The King proudly stands tall with his signature Nemes headdress, while the Queen exudes a regal aura with her graceful pose and elegant headpiece, reminiscent of this iconic era.

The Bishop, represented by the powerful Falcon, symbolizes Horus, the celestial god of royalty, often depicted as a man with the head of a falcon. The Knight embodies grace and poise, taking the form of a cat, revered for its ability to control pests and kill snakes during this historic period. The Rooks are shaped as obelisks, a prominent feature in Egyptian architecture and traditionally placed in pairs at temple entrances. Interestingly, the term "Obelisk" has Greek origins. Completing the line-up is the iconic Anubis, the God of Death and Funerals, making for the perfect pawn in this exquisitely crafted Ancient Egyptian themed chess set. Paired with a luxurious Spanish walnut and maple chess board, this set is truly a work of art, showcasing the rich history and culture of Egypt.

The Ancient Egyptians' advancements in various fields, such as mathematics, medicine, and literature, have left a lasting impact on the world. While some relics have been replicated and scattered across the globe, the majority remain meticulously preserved and on display at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
