The Rook made in 1974 is the establishment of sadeghi’s style in reference to Persian painting and miniature. The chess board act as witness to a game in progress. The players move their pieces until two kings remain and the game back to continue from the beginning which repre-sent ongoing metaphor of political power games. The hu-morous piece of animation looks at the absurdity of war, politics and stance of society in between these notions.
