This Hnefatafl game is carved out of a large 15"x15" piece of rare antique Patagonian Rosewood. The game pieces are made from beautiful black Ebony and deep red Padauk. The combination of woods create a visual symphony intended to transport players to a bygone era of strategic prowess. Not being satified with the detailed carvings, Yarema also added the rich gleam of real 24 karat gold game squares to play with the light. Obviously this beautiful handmade Hnefatafl game board was not created to be merely a game, but more than that—a timeless work of art, inviting those you play with to immerse themselves in the grandeur of a forgotten age.
Rosewood/24 Karat Gold Hnefatafl Game
Every piece we make, whether listed here, hung in a gallery, or sold in person at an event, is handcrafted with pride by our family right here in North Carolina. They are handcrafted one at a time, often to your order, with carefully selected pieces of wood, leather, and other materials.
Your individual piece of art is unique. There will always be slight variations in each and every one we make. Varying wood grains, knots, carve grooves, and brush strokes will be different from one piece to another. We value art that is one-of-a-kind and created with care so you can be sure there is never any mass production here!
