At the Cloisters: The Lewis Chessmen

Jump to last reply

There's a small, but very interesting visiting exhibit at the Cloisters of ivory chess figures from the 12th century. Although probably carved in Norway, they were unearthed on the Isle of Lewis in the 19th century. What happened in between remains a mystery.

If you have never visited the Cloisters before or haven't been in a long time, this might be a good occasion to visit. Select a nice sunny day when you can take advantage of walking around Fort Tryon Park.
