Byzantine Chess Boards

Often referred to as "Byzantine Chess," circular variations on Chess seem to date as far back as the 10th century. This set will include the Isle of Lewis Chessmen as the pieces, as well as at least two different variation in rules. At right is a picture of the 24-inch diameter oak veneer board before the knotwork decoration was applied. Below is a working sketch of the style of knotwork I have begun to use to decorate the alternating "squares" on the board. The dark squares with have a black background and metalic copper paint to color in the actual knotwork.
