Artist's Description

“PATIENCE IS THE COMPANION
OF WISDOM.”

Saint Augustine

This is a well known location in Zurich called Lindenhof, it is above the Rennweg and it is also known for playing a game of chess. This location overlooks the river Limmat in Zurich and you can see Zurich University from here.

Many years ago, the Lindenhof, Zurich was a roman castle, which was formed here around the 5th or 6th century. Much later, in the year 1747, the tombstone from roman era was discovered that proves this assumption.

The center of Zurich Lindenhof, houses a beautiful fountain. In the center tower of the Fountain there is one statue, dedicated to the women of Zurich from 1291. It is a tribute to their defense skills against Albert I of Germany.

Today, you can see only the ruins of all these past moments in this landmark in Zurich. However, the place is also a favorite spot for the chess players. Several passionate chess players meet in this place for having fun together, by playing chess.
