This 319 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle is of a primitivista jungle painting by Jeyselle Arellano,
an artist from the Island of Solentiname in Nicaragua. The puzzle pieces were designed by Zak
Erving and include whimsy pieces shaped like rain-forest animals (click on the small image
below the main image to see example pieces).
The puzzle is laser-cut from 1/4" thick wood, and made in USA. Packaged in a pine wood box.

Laser-cut wooden jigsaw puzzle
Made in USA
Founded in 2009 as an experiment in the economics of micro-manufacturing,
Artifact Puzzles is an artisanal puzzle company that designs, makes, and
sells artsy laser-cut wooden jigsaw puzzles. Based in Menlo Park, CA,
just south of San Francisco, they produce puzzles using environmentally-friendly plywood and soy-based inks.
Artifact Puzzles offers two lines of puzzles. The standard line has bright
glossy prints that are maximally cheery, and reveal the unique puzzle designs.
The newer Ecru line of puzzles has matte prints that reduce glare, and
closer-cut pieces that do not highlight the puzzle design as well, but better
display the puzzle's image.
With puzzles that span a diverse collection of art that literally puts you
in touch with past, present, and imagined civilizations, their artists
design a unique puzzle for every image, each design
inspired by that image, to add charm and challenge to the puzzle experience.
We hope you find Artifact Puzzles a rewarding way to relax and connect with friends and family.
