I would like to understand Buryat and Buddhist tradition rationally, yet, I believe, something within me knows it better than I do.

SHAATAR << back

Shaatar (Chess) have been used by nomads in Buryatia since approximately the 17th century. A few features of shaatar have to do with a nomadic way of life: they are "stored" in a small leather bag (which is convenient for traveling). Images of warriors or wrestlers are used as pawns, the horse image is often used for a castle, and the camel is used for a bishop, etc.

D. Namdakov made his shaatar (only two sets were made) following the old tradition. Each set is unique. He used mammoth bone, which is a traditional material for Eastern Siberia. Each figure in each set is very unique, with a particular features. Imagery in Namdakov's shaatar depicts a strong influence of cultural traditions of Buddhism and Hinduism.

The set can bring a real joy not only to chess lovers, but also to those who enjoy and value real craftsmanship.
