Artifact Puzzles - Richard Friend Live Work Hope Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

This is a 177-piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of "Live Work Hope" by contemporary British painter Richard Friend.

The puzzle design by Dennis Nolasco uses mostly knob connectors and has rural themed whimsies (some with a little etching for extra charm), and a straight edge, making this puzzle a bit easier than average for its size. 

Like all our puzzles, laser-cut from 1/4" thick wood. Packaged in a blue box with magnetic clasp. Made in USA.

8" by 10.25"

Review: Pretty easy, since the stripes give a lot of hints. Yes, it has "basic" knob connectors, but it's not laid out in a boring grid.

Review: What a lovely puzzle! Not too difficult, not too big, just right for a delightful couple of hours (I am slow, it took me less than two hours, but I know some people out there will crunch it within 20 minutes or so). Kid-friendly, I would say as of second grade for patient and skilled kids. Very interesting problem solving: the orientation of lines and the location of repetitive motives within the puzzle require and/or train observation skills. Very pleasing colors -this pink field has the vibrancy of a yummy watermelon! and there is something extremely sensuous about certain combinations like pink and turquoise, purple and green, etc. The whimsies are adorable and linked to farm life. Which brings us to the title of the puzzle: it offers a visual window on a harmonious dreamy landscape. This puzzle brings a calmness, a sense of achievement and a comforting scenery to elevate the spirits. Yep, this puzzle definitely brings some good vibes: a return to a childlike depiction of rural life, where everything is at the right place in beautiful colors...
