Very delightful painting. But Wow, won't that make for a confusing game! Of course, I only recently started playing chess. So I guess if you are good at it, things would make more sense.
I thought so too! I don't play but maybe it would be a good way to cheat since I think it would be hard keeping up with your pieces. Inside the box are traditional playing pieces so maybe displayed this way would just be a conversation piece of art!
