In Greek mythology, Athene competed with Poseidon for possession of Athens. Poseidon claimed possession by thrusting his trident into the Acropolis, where a well of sea-water gushed out. Athena took possession by planting the first olive tree beside the well. The court of gods and goddesses ruled that Athena had the better right to the land because she had give it the better gift. Olive wreaths were worn by brides and awarded to Olympic victors.
This is our New Release premium quality 50 cm (20”) Executive Flat Chess Board has been handcrafted with natural Olive Burl veneer and Wenge veneer. The olive burl veneer is very unique, it is one of the most beautiful timbers in the world and each chessboard is never the same with another one. Wenge wood is a dense, durable hardwood from central West Africa that is used in flooring, furniture, cabinetry and wood carving. The grain is straight with the coarse look of bamboo slivers. The colour is dark brown with streaks that resemble animal claw marks and lighter patterns that are wavy. This chessboard is marquetry/marqueterie which is the art and craft of applying pieces of veneer to a structure to form decorative patterns and designs. Hand inlaid by specialists, this chessboard represents outstanding value for money, it is exceptionally high in quality, appearance and provides a robust playing surface. The high quality woods with their natural grains used in this chessboard provide an elegant appearance. Our picture will accurately reveal much about colour, quality and design of each chess board but sometimes the colour may vary and be slightly darker due to natural wood grains.
