Review: This may be the most beautiful puzzle I have ever solved. I hesitate to speak in epitomes about any given Artifact puzzle because there are so many outstanding ones on offer, but I am quite taken with this. Klimt has captured for us a glimpse into a powerful, transcendent love which, thanks to Artifact, has now crossed the swirling vastness of space and time to land on our puzzle tables. I find the cut to be an astonishing compliment to the art work's spiraling, cosmic, glittering Nouveau splendor. There has been no scattering about of whimsies here; rather, each has been placed as an integral part of the puzzle's beautiful interior design. The painting's posted image pales a bit next to the brighter, livelier colors you'll discover at your fingertips. It's easy to understand that some of us see Artifact's puzzles as being primarily about the puzzle's cut––its design, creativity, complexity––because Artifact is brilliant at this and offers a variety, as far as I know, found nowhere else. For others of us, the image is the main draw. Tell me, if you can, who else gives us Joe Vaux in puzzle form? Eric Joyner? Rekunenko? APAK? You know I could go on and on! But the really unique thing with these puzzles is the balance Artifact finds between the puzzle design and the image. It's fluid. Sometimes it tips a little towards the cut, sometimes a little towards the image. And sometimes that balance is just perfect: a harmony, a collaboration, let's call it a marriage between the image and the cut where they enhance each other and become a thing greater than the sum of the parts. Puzzle magic. For this puzzle, I offer an alternate title: The Marriage of Image and Cut.

Review: I stayed up late into the night obsessing over finishing this one. I won't ruin any surprises, but I will say the edge was a relief - I was afraid it'd be this desert of green pieces, but those clever AP folks cut it up in a nice fancy way so you didn't hate the last quarter o f the puzzle, the whole thing just flowed. I only gave this four stars though because I was hoping for more gorgeous pieces, like in the Dennis Brady one, but the pieces were mostly pretty basic, but it was still lots of fun.
