When we visited the Mali Chess Museum in Klagenfurt, Austria I was seduced by the enormous number of chess sets exhibited there. We learnt that people like this play everywhere in the world and that the fantasy of those making these sets is practically endless. I had made earlier already chess themed pictures nevertheless I took a fancy to make some more pieces. Sandor Szaraz who is a chess lover, player, organizer, writer and trainer as well gave me advise and helped also. 

My first picture in this series presents the end position of the final game of the Championship Match of the World Chess Championship 2023 held in Astana, Kazakhstan. The Chinese grand master Ding Liren played with the white figures while his counterpart Ian Nepomniachtchi played with the blacks. White gave up the gave after the 47th move the Chinese grandmaster who was born in 1992 became to be the 17th chess world champion. The “chess board” was made of stamps while the figures were glued to the bord using real ones cut-in-half.


To present the same position I made another piece but in 3D. When making the piece a had to sold a new problem, how can I protect the chess board made of paper and stamps but our friend from Luton solved the case.
