This is a 505 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of Seattle artist Alfredo Arreguin's diptych painting titled "Cat Nap." It has a Mayan-themed puzzle design by Tara Flannery and Maria Berg. Despite the straight edge, it is one of the most challenging puzzles we offer. All our puzzles are made with 1/4" wood and laser-cut in the USA. Packaged in an unfinished pine wood box.
Review: This is an amazing puzzle, definitely the best puzzle of my life and I am 73. It is very difficult but very rewarding. The colors on the puzzle are way more vibrant than the picture on the box or the computer picture. There is a wonderful surprise ending. There are delightfully cut pieces and an overall theme that is revealed. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes extremely difficult puzzles.
Review: Artifact is quickly becoming my favorite puzzle company of all time! This was a devilishly hard puzzle but included all the things I've come to expect from Artifact: a beautiful work of art the puzzle is based on, intricate little whimsies, and a secret surprise that is only revealed upon completion. I will be putting this puzzle together again!
Review: This is one of my favorite puzzles of all time. It is challenging, surprising, symbolic and lush. Each jaguar has a unique personality - enchanting. What I loved the most is the way it is cut, something you don’t discover until you have completed the puzzle - an ahhh moment. Of course the quality and shape of the wooden pieces makes it amazing to see and touch. The whole experience was delightful from start to finish.
Review: Enjoyed this puzzle tremendously. Please make others similarly challenging.

Review: This is my favorite big/difficult Artifact puzzle and worth every penny. The art is stunningly beautiful and much more detailed than can be seen online. It reminded me of our last trip to the Yucatan years ago, when my husband and I stayed in a lovely old hotel right next to the service entrance of Chichen Itza. Late that night we stepped outside to view the stars and found ourselves sneaking into the deserted ruins through the unlocked gate. The Milky Way spilled out from horizon to horizon glowing much like the stars in this artwork. I shiver to think what might have been lurking in the trees! This puzzle is hard and goes super slow (days not hours). I happen to like that a lot. It required many breaks. I gave up on the edge (there are probably twice as many “edge” pieces than needed). I worked out the individuals jaguars before I figured out the underlying pattern - which is just brilliant. Bravo!
