Symbolic chessboard / chessboard

Symbolic chessboard

We designed this new chessboard by using the simplest symbols just for inviting people to choose a simple life and be satisfied by minimum facilities, we have to change our life style and some wrong cultures if we want to keep earth for future generation. Symbolic pieces are understandable for people of every culture. This design is made of metal instead of plastic for having a healthy environment. Blind people can touch chess pieces and its board to identify them easily. The solid chess pieces are heavy enough to remain on the chess board. The height of pieces shows their importance, king has highest height and pawn has lowest height.
