This is a very hard 689 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of a richly detailed 1928 diptych painting of a forest by Katayama Bokuyo. Our puzzle has mushroomy and leafy connectors and pentagonal pieces. Forest-themed whimsy pieces abound. Puzzle design by Tara Flannery and Jim Muller. This puzzle has a straight edge, but it's very difficult. Like all our puzzles, the pieces are laser-cut from 1/4 inch thick wood. Packaged in our 3" pine wood box. Made in USA.

Review: Such a beautiful puzzle. It never got boring and I adored how smaller pieces formed larger shapes together within the puzzle. Truly the best puzzle I've ever done.

Review: With most puzzles, there is usually a sense of urgency to complete it for immediate gratification. This puzzle is different, however. Full of tree bark/fern/leave textures in predominant colors of green and black, this puzzle is very difficult. Precisely for this reason, this puzzle beckons the puzzler to slow down, prolong and enjoy the puzzling process- “It is ok if you cannot find the piece that you are looking for today, just try again tomorrow." I didn’t feel rushed nor frustrated at the insignificant progress I was making for a good 3 weeks. Instead, each time a piece fits, it was a celebratory moment. It took me 1 month of intermittent puzzling from start to finish and boy, what an enjoyable month it was!
