Ecru Puzzles - Kawase Hasui Nocturne Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

Ecru Puzzles - Kawase Hasui Nocturne Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 53.00


This is a 145 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of "Nocturne" by Kawase Hasui. The beautiful Japanese woodblock print has an unusual puzzle design by Jef Bambas that consists of tessellated interlocking fish pieces and an irregular edge, which makes this puzzle really hard. It also has another secret special feature. 

Our Ecru Puzzles line is characterized by a closer cut and a matte finish to reduce glare. Like all our puzzles, made of 1/4" thick laser-cut wood and made in the USA. Packaged in a blue box with a magnetic clasp.

Formerly Mystery Puzzle #11

Review: This was my very first Artifact puzzle; with more than twenty under my belt, I still think I chose well. Like many Artifacts, it rewards being done twice, once face up and once face down. The image looks intimidatingly monochrome at first, but subtle differentiations in shade soon become apparent, and with a little practice it's easy to pick out the edge fishes from the rest of the shoal, so to speak, which helps give structure. There's also just enough whimsies to give you a starting place to build around without eliminating the challenge of the tessellation cut. If you're wondering whether you'd like tessellation cuts or not, this is great place to start.

Review: Japan is on my bucket list, and here is a way to travel within an image: colors, image, design of the pieces, everything is extremely exotic. Perfect size for a nice winding down evening.

Review: This was my first experience with a tessellated puzzle. “Oh god, what have I done?” I thought when I opened the box of seemingly identical little blue fish. My apprehension was overshadowed by my love of Kawase Hasui, however, so I pressed on. Assembling this requires careful sorting and close attention to color and shape. Don’t forget to flip it when you’re done! I love the Ecru puzzles, and this one is especially well suited to the line. The matte finish and the flow of the cut add to the overall tranquility of the artwork. Kudos to Jef Bambas for a beautiful design that treats the artwork with the respect it deserves.
