Just Wow! I keep staring at this mesmerizing, mysterious painting. I think this bear with wings is holding the earth. Hopefully keeping it safe. Of course it is open to your personal interpretation. The only thing I know for sure is it made for a very enjoyable puzzling experience! Quality: Well, very loose piece fit is the only negative. I know it can be annoying, but I could ignore it here. I pretty much put this together piece by piece, so sections falling apart was not an issue. The sturdy box is fairly large and contains only a resealable bag of pieces. The full illustration is on the box top and is an excellent color match to the pieces. There was little puzzle dust. The sturdy pieces are a nice thickness and totally matte. There were no false fits. The pieces just fell into place. None were damaged or in any way stuck together and none were missing. Getting started: Find the edge pieces and sort by color. I did a very deliberate sort: grays, browns, blacks, turquoise, orange, pinks, head features, lightest white, white with design, blues, coat trim, coat fabric shades and designs - twenty four 7” square trays with one layer. I didn’t bother to sort every tray by shape — color and design specifics played the major role. The frame went together fairly easily, offered enough color information to get started, and a bit of unwarranted worry about false fits because of the dark areas. Construction: I began the build from the edges in, leaving just the outline of the bear and its coat. I thought at first that part (about half the puzzle!) would be very difficult and take days. My sorting was clearly the key to making this a rewarding and (for me) a very quick finish.This was not an easy puzzle, the dark areas and the coat deserved at least a medium difficulty level. This is my favorite illustration style. If it had taken longer to find and place every one of those coat pieces, I would have still had fun doing it! But if you are not fond of large areas of similar color or design, the hard rating is also fair. Final thoughts: This was possibly the most satisfying puzzling experience I have had so far. Yes, I finished it faster than expected, but it was more than that. The piece quality was exceptional, the finished product so curious, so beautiful in its mystery. I’m going to enjoy it on my puzzle station for a while before taking it apart. It is one I will do again. My ratings: Quality A-, Fun Factor A+

Wow. The colors were luminous, the challenges perfect - not too hard, not too easy. A perfect meditation on our world. I was bothered at one point by the Facebook icon, but I communicated with the painter. It was not deliberate in the sense of an ad placement, which made me happier. The pieces are smooth and silky, as I always expect with Pomegranate puzzles. As someone who primarily puts together 1000 piece puzzles on a regular basis, I relish Pomegranate's commitment to beautiful puzzles such as this.

I enjoyed working this puzzle. The piece cut was well designed.The art is great. I had it heat fused and it’s hanging in the office. I got more great comments on this puzzle at hobby lobby, where I have my puzzles fused, that any other puzzle I have taken there.

While there are only a small section if color, this puzzle still had enough distinct symbols on the white sections to keep our interest. This was completed as a group because the variety of sections allowed each person to work on one's area without needing pieces from the other puzzlers. I highly recommend puzzles from Pomegranate.

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!
