Carefully handcrafted wooden art puzzle.
Original illustration by Sophie Malraye.
Winter solstice on one side, summer solstice on the other. Each side is different, but on the same theme, in the same spirit and in the same colors.
Both sides have been sanded and varnished several times to guarantee the hold of the image but also the softness of the touch. The image is printed directly onto the wood and will never peel off.
It's been meticulously cut according to the design, most often along the color lines. The pieces are all unique and specially shaped to create an interesting challenge.
To celebrate this theme, a dozen pieces of special shapes (whimsies) have been scattered in the landscape (flowers, and other fishes...)
This puzzle is a bit difficult, but really pleasant. It will take you about 5 hours to do it. It will suit an adult, or a calm child over 10 years old...
It will come in a cardboard box, with the two models in a small frame and its easel. (Traditionally wooden puzzles were supplied without a template, just a title. It's up to you to cheat or not ;-) ).
These puzzles are wonderful gifts. In addition to being very pretty objects, they allow moments of relaxation and conviviality. Families and friends can gather around them , over a drink, a conversation, for a few minutes or a few hours. An invitation to put away screens and rediscover this art of yesteryear.

The quality is exceptions. Came on time as expected with great communication from the owner. Can't wait to do it. The extra little gift and sweets were just a plus.
