This is a 418 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of American contemporary painter Kevin Sloan's "Welcome to the Wilderness" painting, from Sloan's Birds of America series, which re-visits Audubon's famous series of the same name. The puzzle was designed by puzzle artist Tara Flannery, and features a partly-irregular edge, many whimsy pieces with a South American wilderness theme, and the connectors are reverse-mushroom-curl. The puzzle's difficulty is average. Like all our puzzles, laser-cut from quarter inch thick wood. Packaged in our standard pine wood box. Made in USA.

Review: The beauty of this puzzle consist in combining elements of classicism -gorgeous vintage suitcases, the egret painted in an Audubon style, the dramatic landscape in the background-, a modern fun irregular edge and the suggested slapstick moment about to happen: the landing of the monarch butterfly! The irregular edge of this puzzle is so much fun! I am sorry that Edward (see review below) mistook the drop-outs as missing pieces. These drop-outs add narratives to the central image. It is average hard and a great moment of mental traveling.

Review: Exceptional artistry, creativity and sense of whimsy by Kevin Sloane and Tara Flannery. A frustratingly joyful experience with a wooden jigsaw puzzle of the highest quality. Thank you Artifact Puzzles!

Review: Four of my family finished this puzzle in three hours and twenty minutes after thanksgiving dinner and were excited and proud. Over the years I have been buying great 500 piece puzzles. This puzzle was 418 pieces and some of the edge pieces were missing, this made me uncomfortable. I am sure we will be buying more of this type from your company next year.

Review: This puzzle is so much fun. It is probably the best argument for not revealing the funky frames. I assembled the puzzle without a clue of the border. What a fun unfolding that was. As is true of all of Kevin Sloan's works engaged by Artifact, he puts the whimsy in the puzzle before Ms. Flannery adds hers. I love all things Sloan and Flannery. Thank you, thank you.

Review: This puzzle is fantastic! It has a wonderfully unusual edge and fascinating whimsy pieces, some with see-through cuts. Each suitcase is like a mini puzzle that you can assemble and then fit together. I would rate it as difficult.
