I took this picture under a church in Oia, Greece, I also made the rough drawing on paper. I used to play chess every day some time ago... The Queen is the most powerful piece in the game, being able to move any number of squares vertically, horizontally or diagonally. I intended to draw a skull ring, I finally opted for a hypnotic knot ring...
