Re-edition of 1920 Wood Chess set by Man Ray. Man Ray's lifelong friendship with avid chess player and fellow artist Marcel Duchamp led to his chess piece design. Man Ray sought to use pure geometric forms associated historically and figuratively with the pieces they represent King piece represents the Egyptian king's pyramid. Queen piece represents the medieval queen's conical headdress. Bishop piece represents a flask for the concocting of healing liqueurs. Knight piece based on a favorite form, the carved scroll found on a violin. Made of solid Beech wood. Made in Germany under license with the Man Ray Trust. Chessboard and pieces sold separately.
