A curator holds a king piece of the Lewis Chessmen, which are on display at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, Scotland May 20, 2010. The Lewis Chessmen consist of 93 pieces of elaborately worked walrus ivory and whales' teeth in the forms of seated kings and queens, mitred bishops, knights on their mounts, standing warders and pawns in the shape of obelisks. They are thought to have been made in Norway about AD 1150-1200 and were found on the Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides, Scotland in the late 1800's. REUTERS/David Moir (BRITAIN - Tags: SOCIETY)
