Mystery of the Missing Migrants 1000 PC Jigsaw Puzzle
Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007)
Mystery of the Missing Migrants, 1990
The artist’s own words: For centuries, the neo tropical migrants in this picture have shuttled between winter homes in the tropical rainforest and nesting sites in our woodlands. Now their populations are plummeting. Why? Habitat destruction. Down There? Up Here? Is your favourite songster in this flock? Each April, I listen anxiously to the dawn chorus for the return of my favourite, that world-class flutist, the Wood Thrush. Are silent springs forthcoming? Remember the canary in the coal mine?
Forty-five birds are presented in Charley Harper’s own unique “minimal realism” style. See the back of the puzzle box for the identification of each species.
Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, our 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzles combine superb colour reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzle workers.
