To that end, a unique chess board was commissioned by the Department of Arts. It was felt that a chess set was an ideal symbol – allowing for past and future icons in the chess pieces themselves; and reflecting the Isles’ values of friendly competition and strategy.
It was agreed that the Chess Artefact should be a unique item, with chess pieces added as and when relevant items were found or created.
Our Department of Arts and Culture passed the brief for this item to Creative Designer, Lady Katherine Revell; who also fashions our bespoke ceremonial medals, and we are now delighted to announce the finished article can be unveiled. See Chess Set page for full details.
