max_finkelstein_chessMax Finkelstein made a pretty set of chess pieces, each piece influenced by the spirituality of kachinas. What’s a kachina? A spirit being of the western Pueblos (Hopi, Zuni, …)

The Wilmington Woodturners from NC also made a nice wooden set.

These guys found a nifty Kachina set at the Hubbard Museum of the American West.

(Kachina is also an upcoming board game from Bucephalus.)
