The Rook is a large scale equine chess piece, intended as a speculative precursor to a full landscape art installation: an entire chess set of monumental equine pieces, each adorned and posed to represent traditional chess pieces.
The sculpture stands approximately 4.3 metres (14ft) tall on its plinth and is made of galvanised and powder-coated steel.
Each piece of the proposed chess set will be rendered as a different horse breed, and can be tailor-made for a specific client's own horses or equine pursuits.
It will be on exhibit there until mid September and is for sale. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details
It partners our equally exclusive small-scale sterling silver chess set, a unique artwork proposal also being developed with Hamilton & Inches along with Method Studios cabinet-makers.
