This piece is a fantastical ceramic chess set made up of a village. Surrounding the actual chess board is a village of turreted, peaked and snow-covered buildings. White ghost-like figures stretch out of windows and are crowded on the balconies and terraces of the buildings in an attempt to see the chess match. The chess pieces resemble turtle-like animals standing upright and wearing armor. The chess board is textured and the height of it is varied in different places. The chess set is primarily brown, white and tan.
