If only chess pieces looked like this…

by admin on October 15, 2008

Recently I found a Web page with some marvelous pictures of whimsical chess pieces brought to life as fantasy characters. They reminded me of Carina Jørgensen’s work, which I wrote about in this entry from October 2007. The person who posted the pictures captioned them (in Russian), “If only chess pieces looked like this…”

I’m not exactly sure who the artist is; it may be the poster, “Aspirit,” but it’s hard to tell. Anyway, if you’d like to take a look at more chess pieces from fantasyland, go to http://klopp.ru/index.php?newsid=40582. (Don’t be intimidated by all the Russian language on the page!)

Here’s one more picture just for fun:

I wonder which piece this is? He looks too short to be a king, and he looks more like a knave than a knight. So my guess is that he is a rook.
