Chess sets by Pascal Simon

Photos of some wonderfull handmade chess pieces, sets and marquetry boards by Pascal Simon
Update: Pascal Simon now has his own site with more details and pictures of these lovely sets. [december 2002]

The top two pictures are from a single set based on the history of the Cathars. The characters are genuine historical figures and the heraldic devices are also historicaly exact.
The picture bottom left is part of a 'Pyrenean' set symbolising the opposition between the forces of nature and civilisation.
The individual pieces bottom right are from another game
