Tulse Luper – 20. Chess Pieces (All White Knights)

To return to that described as the Relstab image: there is no known instance of a place, city, town or village, named Relstab, in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia, Slovakia or Hungary.
Ludwig Rellstab (†14 February 1983) was a German chess master, but this should be accounted a red herring.
In defiance of the law against making unwarranted connections, the interior appears to be a village hall: the scene is amateur dramatics, certainly not a fancy dress party, the players are kitted out in various medieval attires, with the women in those helmets.
(No time to divert into the helmet with or without horns business.)
Candidates for the dramatic production are Das Rheingold, or Das Kunstwerk der Zukunft (The Artwork of the Future).
It might be more Saxon than Norse in inspiration, although it is difficult to tell with cardboard armour and a designer who wasn’t really up on history.
Some claim that the notice board, left background, has an official notice concerned with Sturmabteilung business; they claim to be able make out the lightning-strike logo in amongst the resolution of photographic grains.
Others propose that this is the rounded swastika of the German Faith Movement.
In any case, this is a piece of paper pinned to a notice board, not a manifesto of every single person photographed in that hall.

These suitcases represent the world according to Tulse Luper
