Chess Board

The Chess Board is the surface on which the game of Chess is played. In earlier times the 64 squares (8 x 8), whcih are also found in the Vastu Purusha Mandala and which are paralleled with the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching were very likely linked with cosmological themes via the tradition of magic squares. One version was called 4 Seasons Chess.
