Product Description

This is a 357 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of one of Daniel Merriam's most beloved images. This is a numbered limited edition of 2000 puzzles, with the limited edition number engraved on the back of the wood box lid. The puzzle pieces were designed by Tara Flannery and have bubbly-shaped pieces, bed-time themed whimsy pieces (e.g. pieces shaped like a teddy bear, an owl, a cow jumping over the moon), and the edge is not straight (so there are no straight edge pieces). Click on the small images under the main product image to see example puzzle pieces. Like all our puzzles, this puzzle is laser-cut from 1/4" thick wood. Packaged in our standard unfinished pine wood box. Made in USA.

I received this as a gift and I was very pleased. The picture is gorgeous, the puzzle difficult but not impossible. Took me about two days of working on it (about 10-15 hours, I'd say). You want a challenge when the puzzle is this expensive!

When put together, the puzzle is a solid piece. You can move it around a bit and it won't come apart (unlike another Artifact puzzle-the Dragon Mountain one). There are tons of fun individual shapes, plus a few that put together make a fun grouping (such as the teapot pouring into a cup and saucer).

The main challenge is that there is very little color in the picture. There's white/grey/silver, several shades of blue and the butterflies. Also, the edges are not straight, which I did not realize until almost done. I only found a few "edge" pieces, so started to work in the middle and worked my way out. The edges ended up being a wave pattern.

I would definitely recommend this and am very glad to have received this!

While pricey, you get what you pay for. The pieces fit together perfectly and several of them have interesting shapes. They are challenging, but my daughter, who this was a gift for, likes this. The end product was beautiful! Worthy of a frame. The puzzle arrived when promised and in perfect condition!

Challenging and beautiful puzzle!
Received as a gift, I spent two days working on this puzzle and enjoyed every minute of it. It has lots of whimsey pieces, mostly related to the moon or the nursery rhyme, very few colors to help in putting it together, and an incredible number of one-of-a-kind shapes. Even when I had only a dozen pieces left, they were still a challenge to find their proper spaces. A very enjoyable pastime and very rewarding when finished.
I LOVE the whimsey pieces in these puzzles. I found 33 whimsey pieces in this puzzle -- 5 of which have 2 pieces, 4 are musical and 2 scenes. Can you find them all? Most have something to do with the nursery rhyme, nighttime, or the sky. Thanks to your designer for a really fun puzzle.

One of the most beautiful wooden puzzles we have put together. My wife thought it was one of the most challenging of the wooden puzzzles. Our daughter and grandson also enjoyed it.

Eloquently packaged and unique designs, just perfect for a framed piece for the guest room. I would like to add that the photo shown does not display the design of the outside of the puzzle, it's lovely... but not square! I ended up top mounting it on a linen mat and then framed it. Beautiful!

We have assembled 7 Artifact Puzzles and have found them extremely entertaining and enjoyable. The Artifact Puzzles are not just complex and well made puzzles of unusual artistic images ...they are magical.

The magic begins from the moment you open the box, unfold the paper, and smell the wood.The magic continues when you take out the unique pieces and find among them familiar forms; such as a cat, a piano, a sheep, a butterfly, etc., which gives you a childlike feeling of amazement.

The process of putting the pieces together is joyfully unpredictable. In front of your eyes a few pieces put together create, for example, a child holding a balloon, a man riding a bike, or an ape holding a book. You start to crave for new surprises and you savor each new discovery as a delightful treat.

With most other puzzles when you finish putting the pieces together...you are done. With the Artifact Puzzle the magic still continues; looking at the assembled puzzle you start finding hidden messages in the arrangement of the pieces. You see that the cat is looking at the balloon, a child reads a book sitting on top of a turtle, a monkey evolves into a human being, and so on. Each puzzle has many "hidden treasures" to make you smile.

The Artifact Puzzles are Magic created by a group of very talented people, whose imagination is based on knowledge, kindness, a sense of humor, and above all a sense of wonder. The overall image finish is very sharp and clear and the wood pieces are laser cut to perfection. We wish them continued success and hope they start to make puzzles with even more pieces.
