This is a 138 piece Ecru wooden jigsaw puzzle of Franz Marc's "Cat". The puzzle pieces are extra fancy and extra big so they don't break (see photos above).
Our Ecru puzzles line is characterized by a closer cut and a matte finish to reduce glare. The post-impressionist art is paired with a design by Tara Flannery that has many similar artistic pieces, just a few whimsies, and an irregular edge.
Due to this puzzle's non-unique connectors, it is a very hard puzzle. Like all our puzzles, made of 1/4" thick laser-cut wood and made in the USA. Packaged in our standard pine wood box.

Review: I gave this puzzle to my partner because he is a lover of cats, Franz Marc’s art, and challenging puzzles. It was a perfect match and he thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Like other reviewers have pointed out, you do need to be very aware of the very subtle transitions in color within this puzzle, Several times there were pieces that appeared to be in their correct spots when in fact they had to be relocated. The completed puzzle was worth the extra effort and we loved the colors! Would definitely recommend this puzzle for its non-traditional spin.

Review: When I grabbed this puzzle off the shelf I expected a fast, easy one to work. Well, I was wrong. The pieces are non unique and definitely have to be placed by color and image. No working based on connector shape here. A lovely cat puzzle.

Review: When I first pulled this out of the box I thought it was going to be really difficult (and possibly a little boring/frustrating) with all the pieces being interchangeable. But, there was enough color variety and low enough piece count to make the discovery of finding the fits satisfying and relatively quick. I didn't realize it was a cat themed puzzle until after I started, and this made seeing the seeing the image at the end a cute surprise to finish with. With this puzzle more than others it's cool that the whimsies fit with each other as opposed to just relying on differently cut "ordinary" pieces.
Review: Put on your reading glasses & crank up the bright lights! The at times subtle color shifts & repeating, interlocking pieces result in a satisfying experience for the observant or frustration for the inattentive.
Review: Amazing brilliant colors on every piece, this was a joy to look at. The spiral shape pieces and cat whimsies combined with the saturated colors create a sense of movement and playfulness. I found the puzzle ifficult but not frustrating, completing it solo in about 3 hours. A keen eye for color is needed, since pieces fit together perfectly without being in the right spot. I will definitely enjoy re-doing this puzzle and I recommend this as a perfect gift for all cat-fanciers.
