Wood and leather chess set, 'To Victory' (Ghana)

Embossed in leather, a compass points the way to victory. Francis Agbete creates the intricate motifs in tooled leather and applies them to the lid of a chess set. Intricately carved from sese wood, each warrior lines up for battle. The board graces the interior of a velvet-lined box to store the pieces when not in use.
