Artifact Puzzles - Matt Lyon Monastery Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

Artifact Puzzles - Matt Lyon Monastery Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 117.00

This is a 460 piece puzzle of Matt Lyon's "Monastery." The puzzle itself is also designed by the artist. A number of multi-piece whimsies lend structure to the puzzle's huge variety of pieces and connectors. Don't let the bright colors and simple shapes mislead you - though beautiful, this puzzle is challenging and complex. (The difficulty rating is "really hard.")

Like all our puzzles, laser-cut from 1/4" thick wood. Packaged in our standard unfinished pine wood box. Made in USA (specifically, in Fremont, California). 

11.5" by 20.5"

Review: I loved this puzzle. It was my 1st wooden jigsaw and I think I am now a jigsaw snob. It was a complete joy to do. I didn't find it really hard but it was certainly really enjoyable. I normally pass on my cardboard jigsaws. I will lend out this one. It is too nice to be passed on though.

Review: Beautiful design, cut and color. I love puzzles without straight edges. Great whimsies. Matt Lyon's puzzles never disappoint.

Review: This puzzle is challenging but I never found it frustrating, because the many unique colors and shapes of the different pieces meant you were always looking for a specific piece to fill each gap (“orange arrow shape” or “purplish ball shape”). I’m used to thematic whimsy pieces but even the non-whimsy pieces here echo the “architectural” theme of the main design in a way that is very satisfying. I’ve never done a puzzle with these types of shapes, and I loved it. Also the colors are so vivid and beautiful and the border is delightful.

Review: It isn't just the irregular edge that's challenging, but also the use of "blank space" throughout the whole puzzle. I love Artifact puzzles and am quickly amassing a collection. The bright colors and tricky connectors were just the thing I needed after a stressful day. A good jigsaw puzzle is a balm on your soul and a tactile meditation.

Review: I would have a difficult time choosing my most favorite Artifact puzzle, but this one would be a contender. The border is tricky and very entertaining. Love the whimsey pieces and the colorful scene. No wonder I have become an Artifact puzzle enthusiast. Thanks for many enjoyable hours.
