  • Mola Salsa, 2013 Eric Wert’s still lifes nearly vibrate with saturated color and decadent detail that somehow exceeds the limitations of realism. In Mola Salsa, a stone molcajete seems to exalt its earthly contents to the level of ambrosia—the food of the gods—accompanied by a golden tequila offering. You might discover that your mouth is watering as you fit together the pieces of this 1,000-piece puzzle.

    In his Portland, Oregon, studio, Eric Wert (American, b. 1976) creates still lifes that are the hyperrealistic stuff of dreams. In a veritable flood of sensual detail, he pulls the genre out of the Dutch Golden Age. Wert honed his observation skills as a scientific illustrator at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. Before long he broke away to create oil paintings of flowers, fruits, and vegetables that defy traditional constraints. He uses stunning jewel tones to depict decadent subject matter, with natural and manmade objects arranged as a tumultuous comment on the wonders of life and death. Bees, butterflies, snakes, and other critters find their place in Wert’s work—a modern master’s complex observation of natural mysteries.

    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.

      This is a beautiful puzzle but not one of my favorites. I do not enjoy puzzles where the pieces offer no hints as to direction. Consequently my husband pretty much finished most of the puzzle by himself.

      Absolutely a great quality puzzle. This was my first Pomegranate brand and it is high quality. Many still life pictures are floral and I thought that this subject matter was so fun and unique. Love it!

      This was a real challenge for me but so rewarding when finished! Loved the bright colors, size of puzzle pieces and how they fit together. Even though all the background/wallpaper was extremely challenging, I enjoyed every minute. GREAT PUZZLE!
