Artifact Puzzles - Paul Klee Fish Magic Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 80.00


This is a 254 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of one of Paul Klee's most famous images: Fish Magic. This very special puzzle was designed by Seattle artist Maria Berg to have a bubbly feel with drop-out pieces and an irregular edge - that is, we've artistically cut-out some of the black areas to sculpt the puzzle - to see an example, click on one of the small images under the main image. We apologize to those customers who don't like it when we mess with great art, but it's a really cool puzzle this way! NOTE: The irregular edge is not shown in the image on the box! This makes the puzzle extra challenging. Like all our puzzles, laser-cut from 1/4" thick wood. Packaged in our standard pine wood box. Made in USA.

Review: It's easy to start this puzzle, not so easy to finish. Dropouts and repeating circles make it hard to tell exactly where the edges are, and the darkness of the pieces increases the challenge. The fish whimsies added another grace note--definitely one of the more difficult Artifacts!

Review: I found the design of this puzzle particularly inspired, as if Paul Klee himself had had a hand in its design. It had holes in all the right places, as unexpected as that was at the time. Its blackness was a bit overwhelming at first - the puzzle felt very human in its lack of symmetry, and yet each realization as I merged the incongruent parts together was very satisfying, and when it all came together, very satisfying indeed. This is the sort of puzzle that goes well with a 40 proof drink and the slight insanity of our modern times.

Review: I didn't appreciate the holes or the design of the edge. Both seemed arbitrary and not well designed.
