One of a kind. Bright pieces contrast starkly with a battle-torn and blasted playing field. This is a magnetic chess set to be mounted on a shallow wall shelf. The playing field rests at a slight angle to the wall, and is anchored at the top to prevent tipping. Wall-mountaing allows ongoing games without taking up space in crowded living spaces, as happens with horizontal chessboards. Spectators can easily view the positions of the peices as play continues.
The Field: boiled lacquer, burned paper, hot steel, ashes, dirt and a match on a wooden backing board • The Pieces: paper, wood, neodymium magnets, felt
