ITEM#: 13648199Give your chess game some attitude with this unique recycled metal chess set. Each piece is constructed from recycled auto parts, and the pyramid base channels the warriors of ancient Mexico. A handsome metal finish complements the design of the chess pieces, giving you a bold and interesting way to protect the queen and chase after the elusive checkmate.

Story Behind the Art:
Born in a Mexican town famed for its traditional artistry, Armando Ramirez dreamed of creating something new. 'As a child I enjoyed inventing toys, and soon yearned to create a unique style of art. Environmentally enamored, I now transform recycled goods. I began to craft figures from scrap and discarded mechanical parts, mostly from cars and bicycles. Thanks to the creativity that God gave me, today I have an enjoyable and better way of life.'
