I have found Pomegranate puzzles to be very beautiful but very difficult. The difficulty lies in the near-interchangeability of the pieces. I will not buy one again.
The image is lovely, but as other reviewers have mentioned, many pieces were almost identical to each other, complicated by the fact that the cutting of the pieces was not always exact, making you sort of "force" some pieces even when they were supposed to go together. In my opinion, this made the puzzle less enjoyable to put together.
The pieces are really thick and strong. The finish is a matte, which I found unusual, but a wonderful feel.
I am loving doing this puzzle. I really like the feel of the pieces too. However, this puzzle is very tricky. Several pieces look the same and have the same shape! One vertical row of the skirt had to be entirely swapped with the next row to finally get the last piece to fit. Even the edge pieces had some identical ones. Very tricky!
This is a fun puzzle. Easy for an experienced puzzler but challenging enough to make it enjoyable.
This was a beautiful puzzle to complete. I found the blue skies difficult but challenging.
I love Pomegranate puzzles. This one was fun and not too difficult.
