La Connaissance--Puzzle RenaissanceFeb 09, 2013
With beautiful laser-cut wood pieces instead of cheap, boring cardboard pieces and cardboard box that will fall apart, Artifact Puzzles represents the renaissance of puzzles. And this puzzle artistically embodies the Renaissance and the Enlightenment down to the smallest detail. The whimsical image with cheery colors plays a metaphorical joke on the Tower of Babel as a tower of philosophy books rises out of a medieval town. And if your French is good, you can just make out Enlightenment philosophy spilling from the pages. But as any Artifact connoisseur knows, the fun is in the shapes of individual pieces (and in this case a few pieces combine together to form silhouettes). Scattered throughout the puzzle are busts of famous philosophers, from Newton to Franklin, and clues to help you figure out who they are (lightbulb, apple, Leonardo's drawing of human proportions). Even the interlocking pieces are designed on a slant to the puzzle's orientation giving the impression of cursive script. This puzzle took us a few days, challenging- though by far not the hardest (devious) puzzle they offer (we've done 6, each unique yet fantastic). It would make a good gift to a puzzling family, but we don't want to part with ours.
