Handmade wooden jigsaw art puzzle for adults, 150 pieces
This very small painting from 1670 is a major artwork made by Vermeer now exhibited in Paris Louvre Museum. The clear background highlights the concentration of the young woman. Vermeer creates light vibrations using complementary colors: green-red, blue-yellow. The focus is made on the white thread, he probably used a "camera obscura" to create the depth of field.
A unique skill
In a small village of Burgundy, in France, a unique skill has been practiced for many years handed down from one generation to another: that of the art jigsaw puzzles in wood Michèle Wilson. These masters of the art of manipulating the jigsaw are able to follow the color countours of the design, and so create a jigsaw puzzle in which each single piece is unique.
A challenging game
Manual cutting reflects the style of the work of art, chosen in the world's most famous museums. Sky parts are shaped as clouds, sea wave can be seen in the water... This technique yields jigsaw puzzles which are three to four time more difficult than the classic versions.
A work of art
As the saw is extremely thin, the jigsaw puzzles are wonderful in a frame.
