Artifact Puzzles - Matt Lyon Monastery Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 118.00
Free Shipping

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. (The difficulty rating is "really hard.")

Like all our puzzles, laser-cut from 1/4" thick wood. Packaged in our standard unfinished pine wood box. Made in USA (specifically, in Fremont, California). 

11.5" by 20.5"

Review: When is the best time to work this puzzle? When your husbands golfing and you have ALL the pieces to yourself LOL. The monastery was an absolute joy to work. I’m. It one to re-work puzzles but if I did this one would definitely be the one.

Review: I loved this puzzle. It was my 1st wooden jigsaw and I think I am now a jigsaw snob. It was a complete joy to do. I didn't find it really hard but it was certainly really enjoyable. I normally pass on my cardboard jigsaws. I will lend out this one. It is too nice to be passed on though.

Review: Beautiful design, cut and color. I love puzzles without straight edges. Great whimsies. Matt Lyon's puzzles never disappoint.

Review: This puzzle is challenging but I never found it frustrating, because the many unique colors and shapes of the different pieces meant you were always looking for a specific piece to fill each gap (“orange arrow shape” or “purplish ball shape”). I’m used to thematic whimsy pieces but even the non-whimsy pieces here echo the “architectural” theme of the main design in a way that is very satisfying. I’ve never done a puzzle with these types of shapes, and I loved it. Also the colors are so vivid and beautiful and the border is delightful.

Review: It isn't just the irregular edge that's challenging, but also the use of "blank space" throughout the whole puzzle. I love Artifact puzzles and am quickly amassing a collection. The bright colors and tricky connectors were just the thing I needed after a stressful day. A good jigsaw puzzle is a balm on your soul and a tactile meditation.
