RockLove - Bishop Chess Necklace-18" Square ChainProduct Code: RL-6031-18
Analogous with intelligence and sophistication, chess has obsessed the minds of royalty, military, the elite and the mundane for the past 1500 years. The silhouettes are timelessly recognizable - with centuries of romance and conquest soberly contained within the six iconic shapes. Wars - and sanity - have been won and lost on the black and white board.
The bishop has the most dramatic history... across cultures, the groove has led the piece to be know as the elephant (depicting the tusks), a messenger, an archer, a jester ("le fou" with his silly multi tipped cap) and then the bishop (the canonical mitre).
