This is a 205-piece double-sided wooden jigsaw puzzle of Georgia O'Keeffe's 1922 painting, "Lake George Reflection." The abstract landscape in the art is divided here into abstract puzzle pieces, designed by Amy Tang. The puzzle has a straight edge and is double-sided, with the same image on both sides, and thus is itself a reflection much like the art, and this makes it more difficult to solve than if it were single-sided (we categorize this as a really hard puzzle). Like all our puzzles, made with 1/4" thick wood and laser-cut. Packaged in our blue box with a magnetic clasp. Made in the USA.

Review: This takes a little while, the image is double sided, with the reflection and the double sided, one has four of everything to sort out. I started putting together the wide black and white wedge shaped stripe and then working outwards. For some reason the reflection is not perfect, which can help. Half the time the piece one is searching for is upside down. One works areas of puzzles and then fits the areas together. Several times to fit areas together one section had to be flipped over and spun 180 degrees. I was about 80% done and I had 4 pieces left all sky blue. I turned them over and each had a pattern and was able to use the pattern on the reverse to fit the 4 pieces together. Then flip the 4 pieces over and they can only fit in one place. A person smarter than I am could use this to an advantage. I think I am of average Artifact abilities, I needed five hours working alone to finish this puzzle. Maybe the most fun I've had for five hours in some time. This puzzle is a favorite, one puzzle friend boxed it up and borrowed it as soon as I finished. Another couple I share puzzles with will not let it in their house.
Review: I hesitated before purchasing this puzzle, but I really enjoyed it. Perfect image for double-sided because of the (almost) symmetry. Really mind-expanding to piece it together because you are flipping and inverting the image in your head as you try to decide where the piece goes and which side of the piece is face up. As Barb said, it's a challenge but a rewarding and satisfying one. I too would like to see more of these puzzles (doubled-sided of the same image).
Review: Artifact ~ PLEASE give us more double-sided puzzles. This one was so much fun (as was your first one). There's a method for figuring out which side you need to use....I'm not going to spoil your fun by saying anything more about that. Suffice it to say that just figuring that out doesn't mean you're going to breeze through these puzzles. They're a definite challenge, but not in a frustrating way (you know what I mean). So worth doing. Come on, Artifact....I want another one.
