I like it!

For those wondering why Vishy is represented this way, this page on Ganesha might help -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ganesha

Brilliant again ! Nice 'detail' are the three scalps in Anand's trophy basket: Topalov, Kramnik and Gelfand. Wil Carlsen be the next one? I do not exclude this possibility. Apparently matches bring out some extraordinary forces in Anand. I am looking forward to the games the next coming days.

Except for the fact that it Gelfand, not Kramnik.

Once again, amazing, Mr. Jose Daiz.
You go to be one of the world's best in what you do.
I am certainly a fan.

I'm waiting for the moment that hammer is released from the magic around it.

Only a shame the elephant looks like Kramnik, I do like most of the cartoons of Diaz but unfortunately this one is not one of the best.

Kramnik does not look like an elephant.

Outstanding! The God Ganesh is known for removing obstacles. So, Anand has removed obstacles in the past (Kramnik, Topalov and Gelfand). But will he take down Carlsen? The battle has begun!

I don't get it...

Not good. One looks like an elephant and the other doesn't look like Carlsen at all!

luckily the Hindus are not so sensitive to their Gods being cartooned. Had Anand been a Muslim, Jose Diaz would have been issued a fatwa by now, with Muslims gunning for his throat….

Its a shame how weak chess fans think they know something about chess because they have fritz up their asses or can press google button.

That is great cartoon, but I would like to see the scene from the Jungle book, where Magnus could be as Mowgli and Vishy as a tiger Shere Khan fighting each other. That would be really nice, it is perfect association, something like http://dettoldisney.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/jungle-book-mowgli-vs-sh...

Carlsen won two in a row, leads 4-2 now. Pic seems somewaht outdated.

Anonymous's picture

Would that Vishy head fit in the basket? Maybe Carlsen should get a bigger basket...
