  • Flowers in Village The joyful, vibrant colors of spring balance the strength of snow-dappled mountains in Kazuyuki Ohtsu’s landscape. Ohtsu follows the sôsaku hanga (creative print) tradition, in which artists handle every step—they paint the original pictures, carve the woodblocks, and print the images. Ohtsu’s unique compositions are poetic contemplations, drawing the viewer into lovely, tranquil scenes of natural beauty and harmony. Flowers in Village will envelop you in serenity as you complete this 500-piece jigsaw puzzle.

    In the perfectly balanced compositions by Kazuyuki Ohtsu (Japanese, b. 1935) we find tranquil scenes of natural beauty, where fallen snow quiets the land and autumn leaves erupt in a riot of color. Born into a family of silk weavers, Ohtsu began the study of printmaking at 19. He apprenticed with celebrated artist Kiyoshi Saito for 40 years. With the passing of Saito, Ohtsu set out on his own career. Like his teacher, he paints the original pictures that serve as blueprints for the hand-carved blocks, then inks the blocks and prints the images. Ohtsu’s artworks forsake an earlier period’s use of strong outlines, instead relying on elemental colors and gentle shapes to depict a harmonious, idealized view of the Japanese countryside.

    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.

      Beautiful puzzle, but pink part was difficult

      Posted by Nancy Smith on Oct 7th 2020

      The top part of this puzzle was easy and the pink part on the bottom was hard, but the quality was high. Pomegranate puzzles are my favorite brand because the pieces are sturdy and they have a satisfying snap when put together. The colors are beautiful and I love being introduced to artists I might not otherwise have encountered. This is a great puzzle if you don't mind a challenge.

      Great puzzle. The pink flowering trees in the foreground were a BIG challenge. But I managed!
