This set comes with a pair of each: Camel, Elephant, Crocodile, Giraffe, Lion, Bull and WarMachine/Crossbow for use as decorative variations of normal chess pieces, or can be used to play Tamerlane/TImur Chess or Full Timur Chess.
"During the reign of Timur Lenk, also called Tamerlane (1336 - 1405), this game was played often in Persia. Some old sources tell that Timur invented the game himself, but this attribution is, as more of such attributions, not necessarily true. The game is a large variant of Shatranj, the orthodox chess-game of that period. As a consequence, the game was also called Shatranj Kamil (perfect chess) or Shatranj Al-Kabir (large chess).
The game was mentioned in Murray's History of Chess, and discussed in more detail, with sample game, in the book of Gollon." - http://www.chessvariants.org/historic.dir/tamerlane.html
