Brasil  (Americas)

Brasil. I have 3 of these sets. The sets are  made in the style of the North-Western folk art in Brazil, which is founded in the 1940s by the artist Vita lino Pereira dos Santos Neto. Manually designed sculptures show caricatures of politicians and soldiers, of priests and saints or of the legendary Bandit Lampiao and Maria Bonita his life's companion. Sometimes you see a more undefined kind of authority figures. The knights are riders and the towers are small houses. Pawns bear kick or something else on their shoulder. Associated board is a baked tile on which a chessboard painted.
