Kispiax Village, 1929 This painting shows a First Nations village in the Pacific Northwest, rendered beautifully by Emily Carr. While the painter titled her painting “Kispiax Village,” the more common spelling is “Kispiox,” referring to the village situated within the Kispiox Indian Reserve in British Columbia. Today its totem poles still tower over the land, just as they do in Carr’s dynamic painting, reproduced here for this 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle.

Artist and writer Emily Carr (Canadian, 1871–1945) was infinitely inspired by The British Columbia wilderness and the First Nations culture. Carr (Canadian, 1871–1945) grew up in Victoria, studied art in San Francisco and abroad, and then returned to her beloved Pacific Northwest. Her early works of First Nations villages were not well received by the public, and she quit painting for over a decade. In 1927 she showed work in the Exhibition of Northwest Coast Art in Ottawa, where she was influenced by Group of Seven artist and theosophist Lawren S. Harris. At 57 she traveled into First Nations territories again, brush in hand. Through her landscapes and haunting depictions of totems, Carr is considered the premier painter of Canada’s Pacific Coast.

Pomegranate is proud to produce jigsaw puzzles with thoughtfully conceived, engagingly intricate, and aesthetically appealing images on a solid interlocking format.
