From ancient times chess has been a metaphor for the wise combination of the free will and a rational attitude to fate. In the imagination of the players chess is a simplified model of war. The figures in chess carry allegories of the eternal clash of good and evil, light and darkness, reason and passion.
The symbolism of alternating colours of black and white on the board’s battlefield is obvious, as in the field of human life itself. The knight lassoing the horse is a symbol of the victory of human strength/force and reason over the unbridled emotions. One can reckon that this is a moment of inner human struggle in the eternal choice over life’s unavoidable decisions and actions.
