Artifact Puzzles - Bundi Palace Garden Miniature Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 36.00


This 202 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle is challenging because the piece connectors are not unique, so the richly detailed image is the only clue to put this puzzle together. Click on the little image underneath the puzzle image to see examples of the hexagonal pieces with hexagonal-shaped connectors. The image is a miniature painting from Bundi (in Rajasthan) from the 18th century (artist name not known). It shows four women in a palace garden, shooting off Roman candles. The puzzle is laser-cut from 1/4" thick wood, and made in USA. Packaged in a small box with a magnetic clasp.

    Review: I'd looked at the Bundi Palace Garden puzzle for a long time, as I love the exotic painting. I didn't realize which category of difficulty it was in until just before buying it, but decided it would be a good difficult one to start with. To me, many of the colors seem bright, but the same colors and patterns appear in different places, making the puzzle harder. A friend and I looked at the painting online, and her comment was that it probably had an irregular border. We looked at the pieces when it arrived, and she said the same thing. She was right. This border cuts off some of the picture on the box, so be forewarned. Because so many of the pieces are identical and fit in multiple places, I was frustrated for a while. I also thought some pieces were missing, especially around the border. Finally I decided to just go with the flow. I hope I ended up with all the pieces where they belong! All in all, this turned out to be one of Artifact's most satisfying puzzles.

    Review: The Bundi Palace Garden Miniature is an outstanding and super enjoyable puzzle. The muted colors and similar patterns of the painting, combined with the mesmerizing geometric shape of its pieces, all contributed to its sneakily subtle complexity. The quality is apparent, in both the look and feel of the pieces, and I really love how substantial they felt as I put them into place. Nearly every piece of the puzzle is hexagonal in shape with small hexagonal connectors....many of which will fit perfectly into the wrong spots! The border is irregularly shaped and is formed by the same look-alike pieces as the interior....so it's hard to tell border and interior pieces apart! There are five creative whimsies that are perfectly themed to the painting. Due to the puzzle's size, I think it is the perfect starter puzzle for people wanting to try working something with more difficulty. It's small enough that it's not too overwhelming for those who haven't worked an Artifact puzzle rated as "very hard" before, but it is still definitely challenging enough for those accustomed to difficult puzzles. Artifact really hit the sweet spot with this one!
