In the hopes of widening the public’s understanding of naturalism, German biologist Ernst Haeckel published Kunstformen der Natur (or Art Forms in Nature) in 1904. The work, equal parts scientific text and artistic endeavor, highlights Haeckel’s particular interest in the symmetries in living forms.
This illustration is from a copy of Kunstformen der Natur in the Case Book Collection in the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress. The Library holds over 162 million items in almost all media and in more than 470 languages.

Gave as gift at xmas.person was pleased with gift
One of the more challenging ones I have done this year. You can count on this brand for a quality product consistently.
Another Pomegranate puzzle. The pieces are thick and precise. This puzzle was moderately easy to do as there were many different colors of pieces.
Think of it as tricky trees. nice when finished
This is hard enough to differ from puzzles that I find more relaxing, but more than worth it. Pomegranate puzzles are works of art; Haeckel is an especially fitting subject. Very strongly recommended.
Unique and colorful picture with Pomegranate's typical excellent quality and standard shapes to its pieces.
This is such a stunning puzzle; truly beautiful. The quality of the pieces as well as the printing also lend to its very satisfying aesthetic. This was a joy to put together.
an absolutely beautiful piece of art work, translated wonderfully on the puzzle
The puzzle is sturdy and well made, however the pieces are huge and fairly regular in shape which makes the puzzle quite easy and feels a little juvenile. The printed image could be sharper, the grayish blue borders on the top and bottom are part of the puzzle as well, there is no poster. Given the quality of the actual pieces I was hoping for a little more refinement in the puzzle itself..
Well made, fun to work on, and a challenge. Beautiful when done.
Easier to solve than I expected. Interesting artwork provided plenty of clues to solution. Excellent quality materials.
