Artifact Puzzles - Piero Di Cosimo Liberazione Di Andromeda Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 96.00


This 411 piece wooden puzzle is a challenge of epic proportions. It's a 16th century painting of the Greek myth where the hero Perseus frees Andromeda from a sea monster. Our puzzle features over a dozen detailed Greek-myth themed whimsy pieces by silhouette artist Kathryn Flocken (click the small image below the main product image to see example pieces).

What makes this puzzle challenging though is the number of false edge pieces (this puzzle has a regular straight edge), and the somewhat non-unique connectors which were inspired by ancient Greek architecture. It's on the easier end of our really hard puzzles (certainly not as hard as say, Fishies or Crystal Grove, but a good challenge).

Like all our puzzles, the pieces are 1/4" thick wood, and laser-cut. Packaged in our standard pine wood box.

Made in USA.

Review: While Perseus was engaged in slaying the monster, this puzzle was busy slaying us! Although we love Greek myths and were delighted with the stunning painting by Pierro di Cosimo, we found ourselves perpetually flummoxed by the "non unique" puzzle pieces created by the puzzle designer. When we finally slogged our way to the finish line, we were confronted with 3 pieces of blue sky, none of which fit exactly in the three remaining spaces of the puzzle. We did not have the heart to dismantle and reassemble one more time. We are glad that Perseus prevailed over the monster, but we cannot say the same in our battle. We often felt more frustration than fun in our solving of this puzzle! Go for it, if you love the extra-hard ones.

Review: The colors in this puzzle thrill me. OK, there's no denying that fantastic sea monster either! I was unfamiliar with this Greek myth so I looked it up. (thank you Miss Brown, 6th grade: "We never guess, we look it up.") The monster's name is Cetus and now I'm wondering if all cetaceans aren’t named after him? The pieces are cut in a Greek key pattern. Very smart. Tough and wonderful. Loved this one. Go Perseus, go!

Review: The beautiful picture Liberazione di Andromeda has been used by Artifact to make a difficult, yet extremely fun puzzle. One of the many things I love about Artifact is that they put so much effort into the design aspect of each puzzle, ensuring each one is always special and unique. In particular for this puzzle, I love the geometrically shaped pieces, which are extraordinary. The majority of the pieces have a very interesting shape that is somewhat rectangular, with hooked arms and small trapezoidal connectors. Each one reminds me of the old barrel of monkeys pieces (remember those?), had they been made in a more linear form. Providing even more challenging fun is the fact that some of the pieces are shaped exactly alike, so that they each will fit into multiple areas. Themed to the Grecian mythology of the painting, the abundant whimsies helped to make a few of the areas a little easier to complete. Forming the straight edged border was tricky, since the edge pieces are shaped the same as most of the interior pieces....loved it!! This is a phenomenal puzzle for anyone who enjoys puzzles on the more challenging end of the scale.
