Monteverde 1000 Piece Pomegranate Jigsaw Puzzle
Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve, Costa Rica, 1999, by Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007)
Charley Harper designed more than fifty posters for various natural areas, parks and conservation organisations, each celebrating a special part of our natural world in the unmistakable and vibrant style Harper called “minimal realism.” Monteverde promotes the beautiful Monteverde cloud Forest Preserve in Costa Rica, home to an astonishing array of flora and fauna, including the sacred quetzal (depicted in the centre of the poster) and the world’s largest number of orchids. Some ninety migratory bird species stop there.
Harper developed his unique style while a student at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and the art Students League in New York City. His distinctive use of simple geometric shapes , patterns, and vivid colours succinctly captured the essence of each creature he portrayed.
Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, Pomegranate 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzles combine superb colour reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzlers.
