Chess Set Table, Queen

81,5 x 75,5 x 68,5 cm
Painted bronze
"I love the chess game; it’s as illuminating as it is frustrating. It is the fairest game I know because it puts everything and everyone in their place. I used to spend hours playing chess with my father and over time got better and eventually started to win. I noticed that he immediately took it personally as he saw himself becoming old and frail. We still cherished those moments playing the game together by the pool in Rome; overlooking the Hudson River in Manhattan, or in the Libyan desert during breaks from his role in Lion of the Desert. For me, it is a game in which the importance of time is relative. If only we could live our lives in the same way we play chess."
