This is a 502 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle featuring Angie Rees' painting "The Skating Party." Lace up your ice skates and get in the winter spirit with these colorfully dressed penguins and beautifully textured landscape. Designed by Jef Bambas, this puzzle contains huge multi-piece whimsies that paints a scenery of their own. It's average hard. See you out on the ice!
Like all our puzzles, laser-cut from 1/4" thick wood. Packaged in our standard pine wood box. Made in USA (specifically, in Fremont, California).

Review: This hit pretty much everything I want in a puzzle: a colorful image that seems almost abstract on individual pieces and only gradually reveals itself as assembled, and a clever cut design that complements the image while remaining challenging to work.I love it when whimsies aren’t simply scattered but come together in mini-scenes, as they do here: the penguin contemplating the decapitated snowman is my favorite, but there are many other lovely touches. Each of the multi-piece whimsies uses a different connector type, which makes them feel almost like mini-puzzles in their own right and gave me many small, separate bursts of the satisfaction of “finishing” while I worked. I love the bears’ jagged fur-like cut the most, and I’m charmed that the biggest bear’s ear is used as a connector. Also, it's a winter puzzle that isn't strongly Christmas-themed. More of those, please!
Review: This was adorable. The picture is cute but, if possible, the pieces themselves are even sweeter. I totally fell in love with all the little penguins, snowmen, and other winter scenes. It's worth flipping the finished puzzle just to look at the shapes on their own.
Review: I purchased this puzzle some time ago for my mom who lived in a senior care facility. She lived on a floor with ladies who shared her love of puzzles. They always had a puzzle table set up and were always working on them day in and day out and sometimes into the night. I knew they wouldn't spend the money for a great Artifact puzzle so I thought it would be a terrific gift for them as they had never had a wood puzzle before. After my mom's passing the puzzle lives on on the floor where all the ladies continue the fun!
Review: other reviewers have gone into detail complimenting this puzzle, so I will just agree with them. Full props to the designer (Jef Bambas) for an intricate, enticing puzzle. I really appreciate all the effort that goes into a design like this that incorporates so many different things: connector variation by region, multipiece whimsies, scenes within a scene, and a ton of whimsies. Great job!

Review: I love this artifact puzzle because of the hidden winter scene within the puzzle. I didn’t see it until I had finished the puzzle. The snowmen are my favorite part. It’s definitely worth the effort of putting this larger puzzle together to see the hidden treasure within the puzzle. A perfect puzzle for long winter nights! My favorite artifact puzzle.
