Hebrews Against Catholics Chess Set - Amazing

In the far 1950s a 10-year-old boy Gianni, from a family of glass makers of a little city Murano near Venice, started to work as an assistant at blowing factories of Murano island where he studied for 7 years. When he was 24, having studied and worked at about 12 various factories for 14 years, he opened his own studio in Venice. The first works of Gianni began to be sold in souvenir shops in San Marko square.


Venice had a great impact on the art of Gianni and in 1969 he created his chess set "Hebrews against Catholics" and won his first prize of Murano Masters.
In some years he made a collection of flowers for Salvador Dali based on his artworks.
In 1981 the family of Gianni moved to America and he started to teach his art to American students in the USA universities.



The chess set is exhibited in the Museum of Corning we have already written about.
One can even buy the glass chess figurines in the shop of the museum.


If you have enough money, of course.
