M.Korosty is known for his love and dedication to the game of chess. An ancient game serves as a martial art form, when practiced , it expands tactical possibilities and awareness of the surface. Same skills and awareness is required to create an image - in this case it is a “Royal Pair” composition presented here. It is based on a real chess situation described in the Nazana’s book of “Magic Moves” The situation when the King is under attack by the Queen, while needing to escape, makes a decisive move from the corner of the board. First the Queen is lured into the corner, from there a surprise attack by the King solves the game to bring a victory to the King in an otherwise hopeless situation. Nazana discovered this Magic Move and used it in his game with Devil and won the battle, which is documented in his ancient book. The illustration of this move is presented in this image, the picture is designed to be explored and interpreted as a kind of Tarot Card.
This image was created in the style of stained glass, an innovative approach to stain glass imagery, developed by Michael Korosty and his Art & Design Studios, in NYC.
