This is a 422-piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of one of John James Audubon's most famous illustrations, the Carolina Parakeets. Now extinct, these parakeets were once relatively common in South Carolina. Puzzle design by Maria Berg includes parakeet whimsy pieces (click on the small photos underneath the puzzle image to see example pieces and our wood box). The original Audubon illustration has a plain background; we have taken the liberty of placing Audubon's parakeets on a blue Venetian sky painted by Francesco Guardi. Like all our puzzles, laser-cut in the USA of 1/4" wood, and packaged in a pine wood box.
