Artifact Puzzles - Jethro Buck Wild Things Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 126.00


This is a dramatic 539 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of "Wild Things" by Jethro Buck. We'd be lion if we said this puzzle wasn't fantastic.

Jethro Buck is a contemporary British painter trained in traditional Indian and Persian miniature painting techniques, and this finely-detailed image has a mix of both modern and ancient imagery in the Indian miniature style. 

The unique puzzle design by Jef Bambas has a straight edge and includes animal whimsies and large connector-less sections. That is, about half of the pieces have connectors, and those pieces form frames, and then the other half of the pieces do not have connectors, so putting them in is a little bit like tangrams with images.  This makes the puzzle a lot harder than normal puzzles.

 Like all our puzzles, made with 1/4" thick wood and the pieces are laser-cut. Packaged in our 3" pine wood box. Made in the USA.

Review: The connectorless pieces make this puzzle a challenge! The art is beautiful and the additional pictures create a neat surprise when you get it all together.

Review: I wasn't sure how I'd feel about this being partly connectorless cause I usually like my puzzles to hold together well, but this was so worth it. I found it really unique and creative. Recommend if you're looking to try something different.

Review: This was far more challenging than I expected, but it was a whole lot of fun to see it come toghether. The mix of connectorless pieces with more traditional pieces made it a new experience for me, and I really enjoyed it.

Review: I so wanted to enjoy this puzzle but found the round edges frustrating because the pieces would constantly shift. Would not recommend.

Review: This puzzle is incredible and it was both a joy and challenge to put together. I think the key is that you have to be strategic in putting it together - I started with the pieces with connectors first and then worked with the pieces without connectors and it came together rather quickly. ( There is a visual surprise if you do it this way too)
