The king is the most important piece. It is the tallest piece of the set. The head is separated from the rest of the body, by a small groove representing the neck.
The queen stands out from the king by her smaller head and her curves. Her rounded corners indicate her unlimited movement in any direction.
The size of the pawns is in proportion to that of the royal couple. This last piece represents a soldier.
The bishop indicates its diagonal movement with its oblique cut at its top. Depending on the country, this figure symbolizes an elephant, a bishop, a knight or even a court jester.
The knight is similar to pawn with a “L” shape added on its top, which not only represents the horse’s mane but also indicates its particular movement on the board.
The rook can be identified by its battlements, vertical grooves on each side of the piece, indicative of its orthogonal and unlimited movement.
