Oahu Chess Vision Statement

Oahu Chess Vision Statement

uptophigh | Jan 31, 2021
On the island of Oahu there should be a giant Hawaiian chess set made. There are several wood carvers that could make wood carvings of King Kamehameha and Queen Liliuokalani. The bishops could be Father Damien from Molokai, the knights could be the Kings Gaurd on horseback and the rooks could be Hawaiian Heiaus. Pawns could be the kings gaurd. This would be a unique chess set for the state of Hawaii on Oahu. I would place this chess set at Wahiawa Botanical Gardens.
