Odette Sierra is from the beautiful Mexican state of Puebla. Her father Edgar Sierra first opened their workshop 30 years ago. Their town is renowned throughout Mexico for its carvings in onyx and marble. Submerged in this artistic heritage, the Sierras began crafting parquet tables in onyx and marble. The art of sculpting marble and onyx demands patience and virtue, both of which have been cultivated over time in the Sierra Family workshop.

I brought this piece to go on my wall unit as home decor. I don't play chess but my daughter does. She likes the set so much she wanted me to give it to her. It won't happen, I'll learn to play first! Great set, take a while to get since it comes from mexico.Read More
This is a very beautiful chess set. I would buy this set again. It is priced just right and quality is good. The felt pads on the bottom of each piece could be better but that is minor. They easily could be replaced . The stone pieces are beautiful.Read More
the set feels very nice and there is a similarity in pawns and bishops ,rooks and queens ; need to focus on your pieces . For some this is an advantage others a disadvantage , and that makes it as well .Read More
