Sharing deep cultural value and timeless design, Manopoulos Chess sets are created through the skills of gifted sculptors, designers, and craftsmen. Each chess set showcases aspects of Greek civilization and European history, from playing pieces which draw on notable historical and mythical figures and famous works of art, to themes taken straight from the history and mythology of Greece, Manopoulos Chess sets are sure to inspire.
The Archers Chess set takes inspiration from battles of the past and the Archers who fought in them. As legendary defenders of the fortress walls of the city and the ones who offered covering fire during the battle, the role of Archers in battle was paramount. Notably, Greek gods Apollo and Artemis were masters in archery and protectors of the archers, while Philoctetes was one of the most famous archers, who carried the mythical bow of Hercules.
Fierce local and international wars characterized these times of the past. Their ferocity is symbolized by the aggressiveness of the Archer (pawn) and the Knight. The posture of the King and Queen indicates their unquestionable leadership, while the Bishop reveals his consideration for the imminent battle. Finally, the Castle is a reproduction of a pillar, the basic symbol of the architectural style during that period.
