Our giant outdoor chess set is based in our African Animal Chess Set - Big 5 Busts chess set, designed and crafted especially for outdoor décor and entertainment. The identical chess pieces were initially carved and crafted by hand, by the same exceptionally talented team of artisans and craftspeople who create the smaller version of the same set. All pieces are still painted by hand, allowing for outstanding attention to detail. The pieces have a rubberized element added to the polystone mix to increase their durability.

The giant outdoor chess set features the following playing pieces:

  • The king - lion
  • The queen - leopard
  • The knight - rhino
  • The bishop - buffalo
  • The rook - elephant
  • The pawn - baboon

Amazing Africa Gifts crafting and material details

Despite their gargantuan size, our giant playing pieces are still hand-made the same way as all our other chess pieces! The goliath pieces are hand-cast in a polystone-rubber mixture, and then painted by hand by our team of exceptionally skilled artists using Winsor and Newton oil paints. Because of their enormous size, the complete set of pieces takes approximately 5 days to be made, from start to finish.

Because the chess set is designed to be housed outdoors, it is sold without any kind of board as our customers typically tend to prefer to create their own board built into the ground in order to lay the foundation for such a large set.

Set size

Pieces height: 64 cm;

Base Diameter of the piece: 23 cm

Packaging

Because shipment location will vary based on our customers’ locations, we cannot specify a standard size for packaging because that will depend on the area to which the set is being shipped. That said, we can guarantee that every piece is individually wrapped and packaged. Each piece is first protected in multiple levels of bubble wrap which help absorb any shock that occurs during transit, in order to prevent breakage and damage. The pieces are then placed in a sturdy double-walled cardboard box containing polystyrene packing pieces which further serve to protect the piece from damage.
