Artifact Puzzles - Jethro Buck Reading on the Carpet of Paradise Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 92.00

This is a 378-piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of the richly detailed "Reading on the Carpet of Paradise" by Brit Jethro Buck. It is a really hard puzzle with a split tendril connector (STC) puzzle design and irregular edge and just a sprinkling of whimsies, by Ashley Boyd. The image variation and detail keeps it from being super hard, but it's definitely for serious puzzlers. Like all our puzzles, made with 1/4" thick wood and the pieces are laser-cut. Packaged in our standard pine wood box. Made in the USA (specifically, in Fremont, California).

11.5" by 20.5"

Review: This puzzle was challenging but I don't think as hard as other similarly cut puzzles (Layers of Afternoon, Crystal Grove). I found the end puzzle design to be less compelling than other Artifact puzzles, but the handful of whimsies were fun to see in their final placement. If you like this puzzle, you will probably like the Wentworth Egg-stremely Difficult wood puzzle where the pattern matching strategy is very similar.

Review: This is my favorite to date. This puzzle is gorgeous. I didnt find it hard and would recommend to anyone. This is the only puzzle I've ever been sad to finish because I would redo it all over again.

Review: Working this puzzle felt like working on the puzzle from paradise. It is now one of my all time favorite puzzles. It was not as hard as I thought it would be as the rug design has lots of variations, but it did take me three afternoons to finish it, which I did not want to do so I was rather poking along. And I am sure I was slow as I needed to use my magnifying glass to decipher the differences in the rug weave. The correct pieces slip into place perfectly so I knew if I was attempting to put in an incorrect piece. And I actually found that some of the whimsies made it harder as they interrupted the flow, harder to see the pattern in some of them. More puzzles just like this one please!

Review: This enchanting puzzle is now my all time favorite. I thought it might be really really hard due to the split tendrils and the repeat pattern in the artwork but it was just hard enough to slow me down enough to notice subtle differences in patterning. Piecing this one is a meditative process, one I can return to again and again.
