Description of the Work:
Cesare Cataniarepresents a metaphysical landscape .
The main scene is represented by a man who is playing chess against himself. On the left a sand hourglass is measuring the time and on the right a giant bishop acts as the jury during the game. The scene is played near a ravine. The background is represented by lunar mountains and a round sun, intrusive by its shape but weak in brightness.
On the edge of the ravine the presence of an echo symbolically represented by an ear which is also giant.
A game of chess with oneself for Cesare Catania represents the deepest form of reflection in himself.
