For serious jigsaw puzzlers only: this mystery puzzle does not come with a picture on the box. All we will tell you is that the image is a 17th century still life painting, and the puzzle has 232 mini-hexagon pieces (product photo shows an example piece). An image label is included hidden inside the box in case you want to label the puzzle afterwards. Our Ecru Puzzles line is characterized by a closer cut and a matte finish to reduce glare. The puzzle design is by Jef Bambas, and has themed whimsy pieces. Like all our puzzles, made of 1/4" thick laser-cut wood and made in the USA. Packaged in a silver box with a magnetic clasp.

Review: I normally use pictures, at least to get a good start. But I so enjoyed the Artifact 4-color puzzle...appreciated not being compelled to look at a picture....that I knew I'd be tackling the Ecru mysteries. This one is so appealing. The colors are crisp and the picture itself is beautiful. I wouldn't say it's an easy puzzle but I didn't have a problem with it. I really liked the cut design for this particular puzzle....a good counterpoint for the flowing lines of the subject matter. I have no idea of how long it took me to finish. Overall, I was working on it for a bit less than a week...but usually worked on it in fits and starts and not in dedicated time chunks. I'm pretty sure I can't compete with Mim. On to the next one....!

Review: I was able to make some headway but after 2 hours without peeking I gave up. I'm not sure if this puzzle calls for more caffeine or less. I would not say it is the most difficult Artifact/Ecru puzzle; but it is among the most difficult. Colors are clear and bright. The issue is not murky colors like the with the Kraken. Spatially the relative position of areas is extremely difficult to combine. One Tough Puzzle without peeking.
