    Which is only funny when you learn that it's a curse! (I've always loved that).

    Beautiful. I can feel the weight.

    (rather be black with the move than white I think - as long as g3 holds)

    I want this set to be a family treasure which will be passed on generation to generation.

    Yeah and then they will wonder  whats it used too when chess is extinct, like i wonder what the russian dolls are used for, where smaller and smaller dolls are trapped inside a big one. if anyone from russia is here, i really would love to know what people use them for.

    I was in Harbin China, and saw these dolls. They come in large and small sizes and each of these have layers of smaller dolls. Most are hand painted and quite beautiful. Many Russians live in Harbin and this is one of the many Things they introduced to China. Harbin has a world famous ice festival and tourists from all over the world come to see beautiful ice sculpture and many Russian dolls end up as a souvenirs.
