Copenhagen K, Denmark

The portrait shows a thoughtful former Foreign Minister Niels Helveg Petersen (born 1939) from the Social Liberal Party standing in the Rigsdag Courtyard apparently playing chess at a table that is balanced on one leg. Who is his opponent, is he ruminating about some political intrigue and what do the green and red pieces signify?
