For those who, like me until yesterday, didn't notice that there can be "more" than five reviews (click on that little inconspicuous "more" after the last review), this puzzle does contain a number of distinctly Christian whimsies. This may attract some people more to the puzzle and alert others that it isn't for their collection, either way, I agree with the very first reviewer that the photo of the whimsies shown does not indicate this in any way, and it is important for many folks to know, one way or the other. I both loved completing this beautifully designed puzzle AND was simultaneously glad to have borrowed it from a friend, rather than purchasing it myself, due to the surprise whimsies. I wasn't bothered by them in passing, but I am also more happy to borrow this lovely puzzle rather than own it myself. To each their own! I'm another puzzler who didn't find this "really hard," as we are warned of in the official description, but two of my most beloved puzzles are Old Friend by Rachell Sumpter and Bokuyo Forest, both of which seem to be on the extra challenging end of the "really hard" spectrum. Along with the gorgeous image, I loved the mix of both abstract sea-turtle pieces AND others with more traditional shape and fun mixed connectors. Very nice assembling variety within a single puzzle, great! My strategy was to start with the distinct building pieces and move out from there. Once I got the hang of the turtles, that section flowed quite smoothly, despite the potential of misplacing flippers, which I did on a few occasions. For me, that added to the challenge in a pleasing way.
