The vibrant sacred art of Paul Heussenstamm incorporates tenets from many religious traditions, among them Buddhism, Hinduism, and Christianity. His signature motif is the mandala, which, for him, “has opened the doorway into the symbolic language of the soul.” Mandalas, ancient patterns that are typically circular and geometric in form, often represent wholeness or unified energy.
Heussenstamm, a fourth-generation artist, is a practitioner of the Eastern tradition of transmission, in which a painting travels through the artist. He shares the spiritual tradition of mandala-painting in workshops held around the world.

Each section is pretty easy to sort of that's how you approach a puzzle. Fit convincingly, pretty images. Fun!
Pomegranate puzzles are always a reliable brand for quality pieces and excellent image quality. Despite the color variation, this one was a little more of a challenge than it looked, but a great puzzle to work.
Colorful and enjoyable to piece together.
Beautiful colors. The pieces are very well made, thick but with clear cut edges. Fun to do but the border pieces were the hardest part.
Super fun and so quick from start to finish. The separate colors of the mandalas makes it so easy to pick the pieces you need.
First puzzle for which I did not complete the border before the rest. Challenging but fun.
I bought this puzzle because of the reviewers said it was her favorite puzzle of the year. I really did enjoy it ALOT. I rated it hard because of the border.....I had to leave that part to the last and it was difficult to put the border together. The rest of the puzzle was very enjoyable and I'll do this one again.
The edges are next to impossible......extremely hard
I LOVE the smoothness and quality of the pieces; they're strong and do not tear easily. This was by far one of my most favorite puzzles; just wish it was a tad tougher - it was a little too easy for me!
This was definitely one of my favorites for 2016. The puzzle image is fantastic and unique. The piece quality is exceptional. Every single piece was fully cut through. Every piece fit snugly. Piece thickness is great. There was no moving around pieces because they fit in multiple places. It took me about 5 hours of solid work on this puzzle to complete it in one sitting from sort to finish. I would give it 5 stars on everything. I would definitely recommend this puzzle.
