Artifact Puzzles - Matt Lyon Monastery Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

Artifact Puzzles - Matt Lyon Monastery Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 110.00

This is a 460 piece puzzle of Matt Lyon's "Monastery." The puzzle itself is also designed by the artist. A number of multi-piece whimsies lend structure to the puzzle's huge variety of pieces and connectors. Don't let the bright colors and simple shapes mislead you - though beautiful, this puzzle is challenging and complex.

Like all our puzzles, laser-cut from 1/4" thick wood. Packaged in our standard unfinished pine wood box. Made in USA (specifically, in Menlo Park, just south of San Francisco). 

11.5" by 20.5"

Review: It was such an enjoyment to work on this puzzle! The pieces are designed in unique and intricate shapes, often of quite delicate and beautiful creation. The colors are vibrant and have infinite variegations, giving your artistic eye the opportunity to develop discernment and acuity. The finished puzzle is a wondrous sight to behold! We loved the many individual whimsy pieces, and then we delighted as multi-piece whimsy pieces materialized as we made progress on the puzzle. At the end, we enjoyed finding the monks strolling the gardens and terraces of the monastery!

Review: We thought we knew what a jigsaw puzzle was supposed to be until putting together the Monastery. In one word, awestruck. Luckily for us we had little idea of what we had purchased from our local board game shop and were delightfully surprised by all the thought and intriguing detail put into this puzzle. Can't wait to share this with family and watch them discover its charm.

Review: This masterpiece of a puzzle is a new favourite, and I own many Artifact puzzles! The pictures posted here of the intricate edge and a few of the interior pieces only hint at the beauty of this puzzle. Kudos to Matt Lyon, both the artist and cut designer, for so superbly marrying the image with the puzzle's design and packing it so full of delightful detail. This puzzle is also a good challenge as the piece shapes are each so individually unique and full of colour it takes some time to complete. I cannot recommend this puzzle highly enough. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.
