Man Ray Chess Set
Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp
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 The Egyptian pyramid represents the king, the medieval queen’s conical headdress the queen and a flask for the concocting of healing liqueurs the bishop. The knight is based on a favorite form, the carved scroll found on a violin. Made of solid beech wood. Crafted in Germany under license of the Man Ray Trust.
