Xiang Xi Yang (Chess)

Chinese Chess and Chess seem to be different, while actually they have lots in common!
However, due to the incomprehension of Chinese character, people might not be able to find the wisdom and the culture are identical in many ways.
Hence, this chess is combining both of them – elegant black and white colour from Chess, and traditional Chinese stamps appearance from Chinese Chess. The letters can be reflected by the mirror below. Plus, the chess board can be a storage box for chess pieces.
Crystal-clear material breaks the barrier between two cultures to let them know each other, interact, and embrace.
