Artifact Puzzles - Kuniyoshi Cats Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 60.00


This 258 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle shows a 19th century woodblock print by Utagawa Kuniyoshi of 53 cats and one octopus (the signature animal of Kuniyoshi). The full title of this work is "Cats Suggested as the 53 Stations of Tokaido." The puzzle pieces have a grid design with numerous cat-shaped whimsy pieces running amok (click on the small picture below the puzzle image to see example pieces), and were designed by Seattle artist Tara Flannery.  This puzzle has a straight edge, but it's harder than average. All our puzzles are made with 1/4" wood in the USA. The puzzle is packaged in a small box with a magnetic clasp.

    Review: Wowza! I’ve done several puzzles from Artifact now and I felt like this one was very tough! I try to not use the picture, but found I just kept staring at all the pieces with my mouth hanging open wondering where my brain went. I ended up having to resort to the picture several times. I felt very accomplished when I finally put that last piece in place!

    Review: This is May all time favorite puzzle. This was my first Artifact puzzle I purchased used. I loved it gifted it, then purchased a second copy. I enjoy the variety of cat whimsy pieces and overall just a delightful puzzle.
