Original illustration composed from old images, directly printed on light poplar plywood, and back laminated with a nice paper. Both sides have been sanded and varnished several times to guarantee the hold of the image and paper but also the softness to the touch.
Meticulously cut according to the design, the pieces are all unique and with specially worked shapes to create an interesting challenge. To celebrate this theme between romanticism and baroque, a dozen pieces of special shapes were scattered throughout the landscape (doe, squirrel, but also arabesques...) Also, note that this puzzle has no straight edges, nor corners! This puzzle is much more difficult than any cardboard puzzle: it is even one of the most difficult that I propose. Some pieces are small, and this puzzle is not suitable for a child under 10 years old. To recompose this format of 20 x 20 cm, count more than 3 hours ...
The whole is presented in a hard cardboard box, with a model. Traditionally wooden puzzles were provided without a template, just a title. You are free to cheat or not ;-).
These puzzles are wonderful gifts. Besides being very nice objects, they allow for a moment 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.
Second puzzle I’ve bought here. An irregular edge increased the level of challenge and it was very pleasurable to do.
A well crafted product, beautifully boxed and promptly delivered.
I’ll be back for more really soon.
