Jan Van Haasteren Winter fun 2 x 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
FREE JVH SCARF
A humorous 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle Illustrated by the popular Dutch artist Jan van Haasteren and made by Jumbo in the Netherlands.
Jan van Haasteren’s Winter Fun’ is a fantastic depiction of two winter traditions in the Netherlands. The first image titled Eleven City Ice Tour’ illustrates the final moments of the ice skating race, which sees skaters pass all eleven historical cities of the province. The finish line is in sight, and the crowds have gathered to see the unique skaters pass over the line in true Jan van Haasteren style! The second image in the 2 x 1000 piece box set is a depiction of the New Year’s Dip’ tradition, which involves hundreds of swimmers from the Netherlands taking the plunge, and braving the icy cold water and weather for a dip in the sea on New Year’s Day! Some of the swimmers are certainly enjoying this festive tradition by taking selfies and drinking coffee in the water, while others have decided to stay by the shore, including a sunbather, camera crew and mermaid! If this small taster of the illustrations in this puzzle sounds like your cup of tea, then don’t miss out on the fun of piecing this puzzle together, because there are many more hilarious illustrations to be enjoyed.
For Decades Jan van Haasteren has created highly detailed, colourful and, above all, humorous illustrations. Most of Jan’s fans will immediately search for his trademark, the “Shark’s Fin” which is featured in every puzzle, but you can also look for other favourite images, Saint Nicholas, The Hands, The Dentures and Jan’s self portrait which you will find in nearly all of his illustrations.
Included in this 2 x 1000 box set is a FREE Jan van Haasteren scarf!
