  • Tree of Life, 1961 Over billions of years, a great diversity of life has filled our oceans, skies, forests, and grasslands. Marine biologists have gazed in wonder at the canny anglerfish, the dazzling nudibranch, and a vast array of living corals; ornithologists have admired the red-headed woodpecker and the ruffed grouse; botanists have traced the family history connecting the fern, the morning glory, the sunflower, and the palm. To convey his teeming conception of the tree of life, Charley Harper chose 102 plants and animals, including even a bacterium, a fungus, and a fine golden pear, for this composition—a fun and fascinating 500-piece puzzle.

    Midcentury modernist Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007) portrayed the natural world with heart and humor. In vivid colors and simple shapes, his cardinals, ladybugs, and clever critters have become icons of wildlife art. His illustrations were published in magazines and books, notably Ford Times and The Giant Golden Book of Biology. A longtime conservationist, Harper created posters for more than 50 nature- and conservation-oriented organizations. His US National Park Service posters—massive, requiring a year each to paint—showcase delightful depictions of entire ecosystems in a style he defined as “minimal realism.” In his adopted hometown of Cincinnati, his public works are the legacy of an artist truly beguiled by the wild, one whose art was a quiet catalyst for ecological action.

    Pomegranate is proud to produce jigsaw puzzles with thoughtfully conceived, engagingly intricate, and aesthetically appealing images on a solid interlocking format. The sturdy construction combined with the wide image selection and vibrant color reproduction will delight everyone from experts to first-time puzzlers.

      I sent this puzzle along with two others to my nephew and his family for the upcoming holidays...they absolutely loved this puzzle & worked on it while their
      turkey was roasting in the oven! Although it only had 500 pieces they said that it was challenging.

      This is a great puzzle, each animal is easy to find with in the pieces. Making it an appropriate challenge for children. Charley Parker's art is so much fun. I am enjoying the puzzle. It is a " just right" puzzle for relaxation, because it is not overly challenging .
