When I first saw this puzzle I thought, “That’s kinda cool”. Then I read the little blurb about the artist and I had to own it. Gregory L. Blackstock is an autistic artist who defines the world around him by identifying, ordering and arranging things. His artwork helps him find a sense of order in a chaotic world.
I have two children with autism, and completely understand his need for order and an outlet for the stress of dealing with people and things that are confusing or upsetting. In addition to being excited to get a jigsaw with artwork by a person with autism, it’s a fabulous fun puzzle that is hard to walk away from. Once you pull pieces for an egg and assemble them, it leads to pieces of another one, and so on and so on.
The Pomegranate quality is exceptional, their boxes AND puzzle pieces feel amazing. The pieces are thick and sturdy and soft feeling at the same time. The box feels just as great and is the sturdiest box I’ve ever seen for a puzzle. The fit is quite good and the image reproduction is as well. LOVED this puzzle! Pomegranate puzzles have exceptional quality and I would recommend them to anyone!
