Mola Salsa Contemporary & Modern Art Jigsaw Puzzle

Eric Wert’s still lifes nearly vibrate with saturated color and decadent detail that somehow exceeds the limitations of realism. In Mola Salsa, a stone molcajete seems to exalt its earthly contents to the level of ambrosia—the food of the gods—accompanied by a golden tequila offering. Not surprisingly, Wert began his career as a scientific illustrator. His current approach is, he says, “more poetic than scientific.”

Wert received a bachelor of fine arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a master of fine arts degree from Northwestern University. He paints in his Portland, Oregon, studio, and his work has been exhibited around the world. See more of Wert’s paintings in Eric Wert: Still Life (Pomegranate, 2018).

The tomatoes and the wallpaper background made this puzzle difficult ...Distinguishing between the two presented a challenge for me. The rest of the pieces were much easier to assemble.

The background was intimidating and to avoid the tedium, I put together everything but.

I just love all the veggies pictured here, guacamole supreme! Don't forget the tequila! The cilantro gave me a fit, and the red background was confounding, but I so enjoyed the spilled salt, and bits of tomato on the table. Fun puzzle, but quite challenging.

I loved this art so much my husband and I turned it into a table for our patio. The finish on the pieces was quality and it was easy to decoupage with polyurethane. The painting was so detailed I could almost taste the lime and tomatoes. Beautiful to look at. I love the puzzles put out by Pomegranate and plan to order more.

I'll be honest...I was Christmas shopping for my puzzle-loving sibs when I bought this puzzle for myself! I loved the composition of it, and since I often make salsa in the summer with fresh produce from the garden, I found this puzzle irresistible! Quality is fabulous!

Beautiful artwork. The background print was really difficult and required piece by piece checking. Really enjoyed this puzzle.

This is the perfect picture for my kitchen. As an avid puzzle lover, as soon as I noticed this one with those vivid colors I said to myself: "I have to buy it". Well, finally I got it. Excellent price, and I was lucky I found it here. In most of the places they don't have it and the prices are super expensive. I strongly recommended it.

I was thrilled to learn that Pomegranate puzzles are available through puzzle warehouse. Outdoor gardening has taken the place of putting puzzles together at this time, but having purchased Pomegranate puzzles in the past, I can attest to their high-quality reproduction of artistic works, rich vibrant colors, and sturdy construction. You can’t go wrong with a Pomegranate puzzle!

Wow! The box is really, really nice. And the pieces are large, thick, and sturdy. And the colors are vibrant in the pieces. I have just started working the puzzle, but I had to submit a review now. Really, there are not enough stars for this puzzle so far.

I have been wanting to do a Pomegranate puzzle and this was perfect. Being from Texas, the salsa bowl, salsa ingrediants, tequila shot---all was a perfect fit for me. These are the things I love. The finished puzzle is beautiful. You can't go wrong with this one.
