A Small wooden chess set

Here, you see a small wooden chess set. It was bought in a `derde-wereld-winkel' (Third World Shop - a shop selling products from 3rd world countries which were bought for a `fair price' from local producers), April 1997. The photo's were made with a camera from an SGI workstation.

There is an index to more photo's of usual and unorthodox chess sets.
