NETTE ROBINSON

This chess board by Nette Robinson is inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (commonly Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 English children’s novel by Lewis Carroll (a pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson).[1]  A young girl named Alice falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world of anthropomorphic creatures. It is seen as a prime example of the literary nonsense genre.[2][3] Its play with logic gives the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children.[2]
