Richard Taylor: <ChessHigherCat: <John Abraham: Kramnik's face suits the rook body very well.>
He looks like the Orwellian version of the Statue of Liberty in drag> !
Do you mean:
1) that he looks (or looked ) like the statue depicted that is or was like an "Orwellian statue" as in the scene depicted or imagined, being in drag, this implies some form of catastrophic decline of change or disaster.
2) of the versions somewhere or at some time in a (movie or some such thing) there; one was an Orwellian version?
In what way, for example in 2) was this version Orwellian? This may mean that the one in drag was inside a movie of Orwellian overtones, so to speak.
in 1) what about "being in drag" (of the Statue of Liberty) which is depicted as something quite different in Dr Strangelove (I have to concede I only discovered this via Wikipedia). Did this drag-version you allude to disturbing or positive?
Of course these questions are quite inane. But your quip remains amusing. Why it is evades me, but a lot of things evade me.
I assume that, as usual in the case of a winner, the winner was seen as a face or head dancing on or with a rook in an absurd and pathetic jig of triumph.
I didn't view this game live so I can't imagine very well how Kramnik would look with his head oscillating on (or waving side to side with) the body of a cartoonish R.
Why the head or image of a head is attached to a rook I have no idea. There are surely many many other ways, more dignified, to signal that one of other of the players has attained the full point.
There is also the possibility that you inferred and failed to type, meaning to indeed type that he looked (or when you wrote the above), looks, like 'an' Orwellian Statue of Liberty....
There is a further question. Are you, or were you, implying that the Stat of Lib is inherently 'Orwellian'? How then do you describe or explicate the (now almost clichaic term) "Orwellian"?
