Artifact Puzzles - Hokusai Dragon Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 28.00


This 81 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle is challenging because the puzzle is cut so that any two pieces can fit together (aka non-unique connectors), and there are a number of false edge and corner pieces, so you really have to pay attention to whether the image detail lines up (but it's crisp and clear!). The dragon was created by Japanese woodblock artist Hokusai, we believe around 1830. This puzzle has a straight edge and no whimsy pieces.

 

All our puzzles are made with 1/4" thick wood in the USA. Packaged in a small box with a magnetic clasp. Warning: puzzle pieces are a choking hazard for small children

    Review: We received this puzzle yesterday and loved it! Smaller challenging puzzles are fun and kids worked on it twice. Please make more of these smaller puzzles, how about one for the Year of the Tiger?

    Review: I join the accolades of others of the beauty and surprising challenge of this small puzzle. I also enjoyed the cut designer's matching the twists of the dragon with a twist on a traditional cut: instead of only the usual four pieces with adjoining straight sides (the corners), this puzzle has eleven pieces with two adjoining straight sides, one with three adjoining straight sides, and other straight sides scattered throughout. Nice!

    Review: Delightful! surrounded by storm-tossed waves, a Reptilian beast with Adorable eyes floats in a Gem-colored sea of ruby red. Only 81 pieces yet still challenging and entertaining, i have No hesitation in recommending this charming little puzzle!

    Review: I hadn't done a jigsaw puzzle in a long time, and decided to start with this because I loved the image of the dragon, and because it was small. Though Hokusai Dragon has only 81 pieces, I found it challenging -- so many pieces fit nicely together, but don't belong together; and many others have straight edges, tempting the puzzler to lay them out as the perimeter -- but many of those pieces are intended for the center of the puzzle. Adding to the challenge are the twists and turns of the dragon's coils, and the sometimes very subtle color variations. The only flaw I would note is that when you discover you have put together two or three pieces that don't belong together, the fit of the pieces is so fine that you risk upending all the pieces around your error in order to undo it.
