Obama Issues 2012 Artwork
Behind the President is a chess board with chess pieces, where a famous move of an immortal game is being played out. The remainder of the chess squares each contain different symbols that represents the issues of Obama's reelection campaign. For example, the apple represents education; the medical sign symbolizes health care; the equal sign stands for equality; the three cars represent the auto industry and the windmill stands for energy. Traits and goals of President Obama are also included: the handshake stands for integrity; the world map symbolizes global diplomacy and leadership; the head and light bulb represents innovation and the piggy bank stands for prosperity.The chess concept was chosen for the theme of the artwork because, like a chess player, President Obama is smart, thoughtful, well informed and thoroughly considers all the options and repercussions before making final decisions. Also, he can't focus on isolated aspects - he has to consider all the moving parts simultaneously.
