As expected from Italfama, these hand painted chess pieces are exquisitely crafted using crushed stone composite, showcasing intricate details and a flawless finish. Each sign is represented in its distinctive form, with the regal Leo and Aquarius Kings, accompanied by the elegant Virgo and Libra Queens. The Aries and Taurus bishops, along with the Sagittarius and Capricorn knights, add to the luxury of the set. Gemini and Pisces serve as the flanking rooks, while Cancer and Scorpio are strikingly ornate pawns. To make gameplay effortless, each piece is clearly marked with its rank. Complete with a stunning 15.75 inch walnut and maple board from Spain, The Zodiac Themed Chess Set is a true masterpiece.

The word "Zodiac" refers to the formations of celestial creatures seen in the night sky and means "animals" in language. Every month, the Sun appears to journey through a great circle known as the "Zodiac Belt". This movement channels energy from different constellations and transmits celestial radiations to Earth. As the planets revolve around the Sun, their individual cycles are influenced by these movements. The Zodiac is comprised of 12 signs, which can be divided into masculine and feminine, positive and negative, or active and passive categories. Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius make up the masculine signs, while Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces are the feminine signs. To remember them, use the following jingle:

The Ram, the Bull, the Heavenly Twins
And now the Crab, the Lion shines,
The Virgin and the Scales.
The Scorpion, Archer and The Goat.
The Man that bears the Watering Pot,
And Fish with glittering tails.
