The mirror with chessmen

« Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it. » Ernest Holmes, author of The Science of Mind

This mirror straddles the line between being an interior item and an art installation. On both sides of the mirror’s surface, black chessmen are seen on the battlefield. Only through the looking glass, in the surreal world, do the silhouettes of white chessmen appear. There are layers of meaning to uncover with this piece, and many people have walked away with different interpretations of what it truly means. What will you see when you gaze into this mirror?
