Ravensburger's BIGGEST jigsaw puzzle! If you're really up for a challenge and have got plenty of room, then this could be the puzzle for you! The 32,000 pieces build into a retrospective of artwork by American artist Keith Haring (1958–1990). Each of the 32 different images shows one of Haring's quirky illustrations, inspired by the cartooning skills he learnt from his father. Haring was very keen for art to be available to everyone, and many of his works were created for charities, hospitals, children's day care centres and orphanages. The limited but vibrant colour palette used in these illustrations will make this puzzle an incredible challenge. The 32,256 pieces (supplied in 8 separate bags) build into a truly massive puzzle measuring 214" x 75.5". The puzzle comes packed in a large sturdy box and is supplied with its own trolley, so you can transport the box which weighs approximately 42 lbs around more easily. This puzzle is ideal for those who want a large challenge and could be used by a group of people who want a huge piece of stunning artwork to display - perhaps in a school, hospital, community hall etc... Ravensburger adult puzzles are made using "Softclick Premium Puzzle" technology. This uses thicker and stronger board (manufactured especially for Ravensburger), and hand-crafted cutting tools resulting in strong, smooth and dust-free pieces with a superb fit. Since 1891 we've been making the finest puzzles in Ravensburg, Germany. It's our attention to detail which makes Ravensburger the world's greatest puzzle brand! We use an exclusively developed, extra-thick cardboard and combine this with our fine, linen-structured paper to create a glare-free puzzle image for a quality you can feel. Our steel cutting tools are designed and crafted by hand. This ensures that no two pieces are alike and guarantees a perfect interlocking fit.

I bought this puzzle a few days ago, along with a bunch of foam core board. When it is complete, I will be storing it in pieces until I have the space to assemble and hang it. As with all Ravensburger puzzles, I have not been disappointed with the quality. The pieces are solid and well-cut. There is almost never a doubt in my mind as to whether a fit is correct, but I am very meticulous. Of course, given the size and color challenge of this puzzle, I would imagine that if you are not meticulous, you'd be crazy to attempt this endeavor.
All said and done, I'm looking forward to the next few months. I have almost completed one fourth of a bag (of which there are eight in the box).
If you love puzzles, want a challenge, and would enjoy having some bright artwork as a prominent art feature in your home, definitely buy this puzzle.
As a side note, Amazon.com's customer service is absolutely phenomenal. I very rarely have anything to call them about, but this was one of the rare occasions I had to contact them. I noticed the price dropped significantly on this item the day after I placed my order. They gave me a price adjustment with no hassle whatsoever. This is the reason I have continued to shop with them for... geez, 15 years now!
So far I've found this puzzle to be much more difficult than the, "Life" puzzle. The colors are solid with very few patterns to go by. This can be frustrating but for me, worth it. I think anyone willing to tackle a 32,000 piece puzzle won't let the additional challenge deter them.
The most frustrating thing for me is that the pieces don't fit together very well. Combine this with the fact that most pieces are solid colored, and you're bound to get annoyed. Even after finishing the first bag and having all pieces "fit" together, I'm not confident that all the pieces are in the right spots and you can easily exchange them with other pieces and not know which is the better fit. That really bothers me. At first I spent a lot of time trying to line up edges but after a while I realized that even if the piece was in the right spot, the edges don't typically line up.
Regardless, given the chance I would purchase this puzzle again.
