Lovely vintage looking picture composed by Sophie Malraye. The picture has been directly printed on light poplar plywood, 5mm thick. Both sides have been sanded and varnished several times to ensure the hold of the image but also the softness of the wood. Note the lovely touch of the string attached to the balloons : there's a blank name tag so you can write your own message to your loved one... Meticulously cut according to the color lines, the pieces are all unique and specially shaped to create a challenging puzzle. It's quite a bit tricky : please notice this puzzle has no straight edges, nor corners : It's cut along the balloon hearts and angels and it contains dropouts ! Many love&hearts whimsy pieces have been scattered... This puzzle is much more difficult than any cardboard puzzle, but not diabolically complicated : Because It's a special love occasion puzzle, we made it sweet and fun... to recompose this 250 pcs puzzle, it should take you 4 to 5 hours. These puzzles are wonderful gifts. In addition to being very pretty heirloom, they allow moments of relaxation and conviviality. Around them gather families and friends, at the turn of a drink, a conversation, for a few minutes or a few hours. An invitation to let go of our screens to find this art of yesteryear.
