Review: This painting was new to me, but it was so haunting that I sought out Tennyson's poem to bolster my understanding of the piece. The cut of the puzzle with its braided edge beautifully complements the dramatic theme of the poem and the painting. Beautiful. Another example of why I think the frames should be hidden from view. I love the challenge of not knowing!

Review: Honestly, my puzzle was made in 2011 or 2012 and I think Artifact has modified their design since then. It was the most challenging puzzle that I had encountered with a more complex braided edge and fine leaf pattern, interwoven into it. It is still the most delicate puzzle that I have with a few noticeable nicks in it, because of some very fine delicate pieces, and it requires a great amount of care and dexterity to put it together. I'd put it into the MOST DIFFICULT challenging level. That said, I love it! It is a real challenge. It is difficult, but it is also extremely beautiful, and you do feel a real sense of accomplishment when you figure it out (especially without the advantage of the solution, photographed and illustrated before you). This is a great gift for serious puzzle lovers who like challenges! It is beautifully crafted and can be done again and again (when you feel up to the challenge!).
