Artifact Puzzles - Martin Heade Two Hummingbirds At Nest Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 73.00


This is a fancy 289 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of Martin Heade's "Two Hummingbirds at Nest." The 19th century American artist took multiple trips to the tropics, and this piece depicting this pair of hummingbirds is from one such journey. The complicated design by David Figueiras includes Costa Rica themed whimsies and a beautiful, irregular edge with many drop-outs. NOTE: The irregular edge is not shown in the image on the box!

This puzzle is harder than average.

Packaged in a blue box with a magnetic clasp. Made in USA.

10" by 13"

Review: ooh, that's a hard one: irregular edge (documented on the picture above) with tons of drop-outs (these do not appear on the picture of the puzzle provided above, so you discover them as you go, yoohoo!). It takes some time to understand the underlying grammar of this puzzle: lots of curlicues and fern spirals, there is some symmetry involved on the edge but the image is making it less obvious, it's baroque and mesmerizing at the same time. Lots of fun to get through it! I agree with Leah (see review below): good natural light is a must to assemble the dark areas at the bottom.

Review: I simply treasure this puzzle. I've worked it three times, but it has not gotten a whole lot easier; it's almost as much a challenge now as the first time. But that's a good thing! And it's also just as much a delight and a pleasure as the first time. The artistry of David Figueiras's clever, intricate design perfectly enhances the artistry of Heade's work, which was obviously painted with love and tenderness and awe. The result is simply exquisite. This is one of my very favorite puzzles. A brilliant accomplishment by the Artifact team.
