#127 - Naissance de Venus


 

valentine's day puzzle
La Naissance de Venus (The Birth of Venus)
(click to enlarge picture)


Figural set for Naissance de Venus includes 4 intricately-cut cupids, a mini-puzzle in two interlocking parts of a dolphin-and-rider, and my signature piece. The rider's hands and feet form the knobs holding him to the dolphin.

Valentine's Day Heart
A dropout cupid naturally joins the group...


Back of puzzle with figurals removed.

 

 

La Naissance de Venus (oil painting by Adolphe-William Bouguereau)

swirl cut
178 pieces
8.5" x 12" (1.75 pieces per square inch)
5 figurals, 1 two-part mini-puzzle, and 1 dropout

This image almost seems designed for a puzzle. The matching colors and indistinct edges and busy activity make it much more challenging than the count of its pieces. The detail, realism and wash of color in the print makes the puzzle a truly interesting challenge, rather than the "polar bear in a snowstorm"-type puzzle that is more repetitive than challenging.
