The story of Taking the Queen came from researching the stars. The story of Cassiopeia the constellations lies behind the checkerboard. There are layers to the painting. On the surface, it is a painting about two queens playing chess on a chessboard, one is taking the queen. The story repeats itself out in their world with the Knight positioned to take the queen. The deeper meaning is about the left snd right brain coming to a conclusion, with the help of the subconscious mind represented by the sun illuminating the correct position.
