Trojan is a chess box that takes the shape of the knight in that game. Its cylindrical part is built like a castle made of two halves joined together to work as a hinge around unseen pin in the back and they entwine in the front when you close the box, so closely, you hardly see the shutting line, as in photo # 1. Inside, you see six shelves enough to take all the pieces.
The horse head on the top is my very first carving creation ever.It consumed most of the time and I carved it without proper carving tools, with carpenter chisels, kitchen knives and files. Also, I made the carriage as tough as possible to match the time of Trojan story. I made the board but I bought the chess pieces.
