‘Northern Lights’ Rook by Cheba at Norway Chess

Purling London’s latest collaboration is with Altibox Norway Chess. For this year’s major international tournament, which is held in the Norwegian city of Stavanger, Purling London provided beautiful Art Chess Trophies for the six participating Grandmasters. The participants include Fabiano Caruana, Levon Aronian and World Champion Magnus Carlsen.

Street artist Cheba designed the rooks to reflect the awe-inspiring beauty and magic of the Northern Lights with his green and purple colour palette, swirling designs and scattering of stars.

Six of these ten hand-painted ‘Northern Lights’ Art Chess Ornaments were presented to the players. We are offering three of the remaining 1 of 1 Rooks for purchase HERE if you would like an Art Chess ornament like some of the world’s top Grandmasters!
