Wow. I’ve cut a bunch of puzzles but never one with pieces that delicate! That’s incredible. What size is it?

Thanks everyone.

Sheila and Jim, this puzzle was intended to have a touch of challenge to it. I’m confident the precocious eight year old artist is well up to the twisted, ziggy and zaggy challenge I’ve set before her.

HuckD, the puzzle is 16 by 16 inches and has 149 pieces. I’ve cut other puzzles in this style, one was from an abstract painting by my artist friend, Charles Allen LaRue and it was 27 by 18 inches and had about 500 pieces. They, Charles and his wife, told me it took them about 14 hours to assemble. I’ve never posted it here. I just might do that.

Thanks again, lumberjocks.

Wow! That looks like fun. To make it and to solve it. What a great twist on the classic jigsaw puzzle.
