Description of the artwork «Chess lady»
This sculpture depicts the Immortal Party (German: Unsterbliche Partie) - a chess game played on June 21, 1851 in London between Adolph Andersen (white) and Lionel Kieseritsky (black). It is notable for the large number of serious sacrifices that White made to achieve victory. One of the most famous games in the history of chess, it was unanimously recognized as the highest example of romantic chess - the trend that prevailed in the middle of the 19th century. As a chess lover, I was very impressed by the Austrian's play and thoughtful strategy. I treat chess as a science, and that's why I call this sculpture a lady. chess lady. some figures look like skulls, this is how I show that on the next moves they will be dead.
