Taking his dramatic images from Bible scenes it is believed that Michelangelo became quite a scholar of the Old Testament in his effort to create this breathtaking work. The task of painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel took him four years, which is brief considering there are almost 350 figures depicted across the whole ceiling. The section we have chosen in our puzzle includes a panel containing the iconic image of Adam's creation.
This Wentworth wooden puzzle is a premium quality traditional gift. It is cut in the classic Victorian style, in which every piece is a different shape and selected pieces are cut in shapes that may reflect the image. These "whimsies" were so called because Victorian puzzle cutters included the shapes on a whim, and the Wentworth Wooden Jigsaw Company has revived this tradition.
A collectible heirloom, the pieces are cut from Finnish birch ply in patterns that challenge, intrigue, frustrate and confuse - not the least because the corners are frequently bisected and straight-sided pieces appear in the middle of the puzzle. State-of-art, computer driven laser technology beautifully creates each piece. Presented in a cotton draw-string bag within a premium quality lidded box, Wentworth puzzles offer a stylish, stunningly crafted gift which will last a life time, providing pleasure to generations.
