The primary idea was to create a chess play with animals. I tried to figure out which animal would fit the best to the character of each chessmen. After a while I came to this decision:
Cheetah, sitting like a monument in the savannah, overlooking everything will become the king. A cobra, very dangerous, perfidious and fast moving, has something queen like.The bishop, running fast along the white and black lines will become a ostrich while the kangaroo has all the qualities of a jumping horse . The bear stands in the corners like a tower and the funny suricates are controlling their living space like an eagle.
The idea was to buy the playing field somewhere. But than,I had to make the checkered leaves plate by myself, as all I saw didn´t fit. It was a kind of unexpected marquetry work I didn´t really enjoy, but it turned out brilliant.
