Ukraine Chess Board

The story behind

The colors of Ukraine represent the ‘sky’ (blue) and the ‘wheat’ (yellow). Anno 2023 Ukraine is the chess board of autonomy and sovereignty, literally and figuratively. The Russian invasion at the end of February 2022, seems to be about expanding the empire of Great Russia Peter the Great, possibly about confiscating the fertile grounds of Ukraine,

This chess board has become a metaphor for the fight for democracy and freedom, against autocracy and unfreedom. That presently the most felt and communicated semantic differential in the West, but possibly and even more likely history will tell us that there is more under the sun.

Wall art

This rectangle archival pigment print in the national colours of Ukraine is a strong reminder on the wall, how fragile democracy, dignity and freedom are and that fight. The Ukraine chess board is the playing field for strategic, tactic and operational thinking and acting starts with this magic board palette.
