Ecru Puzzles - Erin Hanson Layers of Afternoon Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 105.00

This is a 287 piece puzzle of "Layers of Afternoon" by Erin Hanson. This is a split tendril connector puzzle and is kind-of hard: many pieces have almost but not quite exactly the same shape, so be prepared to pay  careful attention to their cut and the art to solve this.  The puzzle design is by Ashley Boyd and includes a modest number of active whimsies. Overall, we think this is "kind-of hard" but not "really hard."

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

11" by 16"

Review: I think this is my favorite wooden jigsaw so far. The picture is lovely - and, because of the matte finish, nice to look at when the puzzle is done - and the fit is really close and satisfying. I'd never done a split tendril puzzle before but I am a fan now! Loved this puzzle.

Review: This puzzle is very similar to the Crystal Grove puzzle (which is one of my all time favorites) but the individual pieces are much bigger. Regardless, if you do one you will immediately feel the similarity when you start doing the other. Like the other Erin Hanson puzzles, the transformation from wild mess of color when you start to a beautiful painted landscape at the end is a magical reward for completing the puzzle. The most remarkable / unique part about this puzzle to me were the multi-part whimsies. I've seen this in other puzzles but they are like fun little mini-puzzle surprises when you realize that what you thought was a weird hunchback man turns out to be a hiker. (This will make more sense when you do the puzzle yourself)

Review: This was my first puzzle with split tendril connectors, and it took my brain a while to figure out how to fit the pieces together! About 2-3 hours in, it finally clicked and I really started to have fun. I’d recommend doing this with bright light because you have to make sure the brushstrokes and other subtle details match up with each piece placement. Great puzzle, can’t wait to do another split tendril!

Review: We managed to put some parts of this together wrong at first, but once we figured it out (took a while though!) and got it right, we felt quite triumphant.

Review: Impressive! This is a puzzle where form and function brilliantly, beautifully collide! My wife and I have become steadfast players and supporters of Artifact Puzzles--our South Bay business neighbors. Speaking strictly for myself, upon immediately opening the beautifully crafted Wooden box of Erin Hanson's “Layers of Afternoon," the scent of the meticulously cut wooden puzzle pieces transported me into the timeless, natural landscape. Gradually, I felt as though I was walking among the trees in the background of Ms. Hanson's lovely painting. One dynamic and refreshing intricate design within the “Layers of Afternoon” puzzle is the painted imagery of nature directly upon four people-shaped puzzle pieces with unique physical positions. Here, I was genuinely humbled by Artifact Puzzle’s brilliant balance of design of multi-wave, crown-edged pieces depicting the harmony between human beings and the natural environment. Adding to this beautiful and complex geometry of puzzle formation was a meditative state of concentration that lasted many hours. Upon completing this amazing puzzle, and for several days thereafter, my mind was refreshingly focused and vitalized. This is a 3-star Micheline cognitive cuisine. BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO! Erin Hanson's timeless "Layer of Afternoon" wooden jigsaw puzzle is slated to become a treasured heirloom within our family among many generations and for many generations into the future.
