This is the kind of artistic creation that I never thought I’d see outside of Harry Potter. The massive chess set is called ‘The Tournament’ and it was designed by Spanish designer Jaime Hayon.

The Tournament was created by Jaime Hayon for the London Design Festival and will be featured as the event's main centerpiece. The chess set represents the Battle of Trafalgar, a very important battle between England, Spain and France in 1805.

The Tournament by Jaime Hayon is a perfect way to incorporate a little bit of monumental history into a wonderful art festival.
