Tupilaq Chess Pieces

Icelandic Artist Haukur Halldorsson, sometimes known as the Hawk has made some rather unusual and unique ceramic chess pieces based in Greenlandic customs.

The Tupilaq tradition from Greenland inspires the pieces; carved entities in Greenlandic folklore made for a variety of reasons like protection, luck, for hunting and so on, the Tupilaqs were traditionally made in secret in isolated places and from perishable materials.

Early European visitors to Greenland were understandably fascinated by the native legend and eager to see what Tupilaqs looked like so the Inuit people began to carve representations of them in more durable material like the sperm whale teeth or bone.
