    Review: One of my favorite paintings makes a grand puzzle that will intrigue you. It’s a carpet within a carpet. As a whole, the puzzle is rather dark and hard to work on a dark table. Spreading the pieces on sheets of white paper worked for me. The pieces are rather small for old arthritic hands, but manageable with the help of an eraser on the end of a pencil to slide pieces into position. All the pieces are not interlocking, but as the puzzle comes together, it locks overall. I used a ruler to help keep the puzzle in line when assembling. Whimsies related to oriental carpets made it fun. Plus, the overall design of the cut pieces came together resembling an oriental-carpet design. It’s a beautiful puzzle that I enjoy putting together once more every year or so. Once it’s finished, it’s a joy to savor the cut design. Beautiful and a fun challenge!

    Review: I love this puzzle! It is a unique design which resembles a fancy carpet! There are exquisite whimsy pieces and some very interesting pieces which link the whole puzzle together. It obviously was not designed to be easy and it is somewhat challenging. It becomes easier when you figure out the pattern. It is a beautiful image. I have seen this image before, but I must say that I prefer Artifact Puzzles to the more traditionally shaped puzzles. I love the high quality, the unique character of each puzzle. This is a puzzle that I will treasure and enjoy many, many, times!

    Review: For those who love puzzles, this is an exquisite, fun, beautiful gift! I received it as a birthday present and enjoyed it tremendously. It does have a pattern within a pattern and an unusual edge. It is not the most difficult nor the most easy, but does provide hours of fun, figuring it out, and discovering the unique patterns.
