They might be chess pieces.

3 chess pieces on a chess board. the right black piece is a pawn. the left and middle pieces look to be the same type (king?). i can’t see what their arrangement on the board is.

I think it’s something like water coming out of a faucet? At least that’s what the right side looks like.. =)

OOPS!! Chess pieces on a black and white chessboard!!!!! =)
The left piece is the queen, the middle one is the King, and the one to the right is the pawn.

checkmate! pawned.

….unless thats the queen, in which case, checkmate will soon follow…

well, it looks to me like chess pieces, and more specifically, one black pawn and queen, and one tan possible king. for a checkmate?

I believe its a picture of a chess board beginning from left to right with a black bishop, a white queen and a black pawn.

actually, i think there are multiple pieces in there, they are just overlapping in the line of sight

Chess

I was always horrible at these things. I would guess it is two chess pieces on a chess board and the white/tan one is a horse. I don’t know what the big black chess piece is or the small one.

Is it a chessboard?
(Still doesn’t help solve the equation.)

Guess I need to stop thinking to much!! My first answer was right!

How does the equation fit into the solution?

15. Ian | Guest

if you look at the origonal (i think that is how you spell it) picture, the white is in check mate.

Hi Sven-the ‘?’ represents the original image (not shown). When you apply the ‘W’ type distortion to it, the above image results.
