This puzzle was a beautiful scene by a talented artist. However, while it's subtle colors were lovely for a painting, they were too much of a challenge for us. The poster that was included was very helpful, and the unusually-shaped pieces were fun. We finished the puzzle, but it took a long time to complete, and we felt a little worn out at the end instead of enjoying our accomplishment. We often work our puzzles again after some time has passed...we'll see about this one.
