Assembly

There is no need to sort this one.....

There was not much to assembling this one due to the shapes.....

What was strange was how the pieces were formed against each other. This is a puzzle but not like a jigsaw puzzle. 

Here are the 40 pieces. As you look at the completed image note how the 40 different pieces seem to appear. A good way to really note it is by trying to find all 40 pieces - that way you will see how the individual pieces are intertwined with one another.

It's one thing to do this as a puzzle however I cannot even imagine how the Artist, M. C. Escher managed to paint such a unique piece of artwork. The individual images are somewhat ghoulish and reptile like - and what do you suppose the guitar is thrown into the mix for????

Comments

Here is the back of the box which shares more information on the Artist: M.C. Escher and about the 'iproject'.

I am somewhat of a fan of his artwork but not so much of this image.  Regardless I have still added this to my collection.


The above jigsaw puzzle(s) have been added to my Puzzle Hobby Tracker 

I am in the process of recording all my past jigsaw puzzles that I still have for my walls and all my current puzzles.

Then I have the TO DO list that I am adding from my collection. 

I have the following four M.C. Escher jigsaw puzzles in my collection plus I have this 3000 pieces Metamorphose at 8.5" x 159" wide.
