Service Description

PAINT YOUR OWN CHESS My dad taught me the basic rules of chess around the age of 4. I’m still not very good at the game but certain moments from that time stick out. What I remember from that time was that he said it was a way for women to be equal to men in a game of strategy, and, indeed, the Queen is the most powerful figure on the board (she wasn’t historically - also they had more pieces, elephants too…) (he also told me to never let anyone put me down because I am a woman, and that it has been men’s centuries for far too long and this century should be for women). Chess is a game of pure strategy. There is no chance involved, only pure thought. Bozorgmehr famously brings the game of chess from India to Iran in the Shahnameh, as a puzzle-gift from one king to another. The court manages to figure out the rules of the game. Are you good at chess? Or, like me, just enjoy the game for its own sake, for playing? We’ll take inspiration from the various miniature paintings depicting chess between all gender combinations and different kinds of boards and paint our own original Game of Thrones.
