THE NATIVITY OF JESUS - 1000 PIECE PUZZLE
This 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle features the artwork of early Renaissance painter, Domenico Ghirlandaio entitled, Adoration of the Shepherds. Instead of displaying the Christ Child in a manger and enfolded in swaddling clothes, Ghirlandaio places Christ on a fold of Mary's robe against the ground, while all the other figures kneel in adoration around Him. Joseph turns away to look towards the dazzling parade of the approaching Magi. The pageant wends its way through an expertly rendered distance in a cheerful array of pinks, yellows, and reds flecked with gold leaf - precious highlights noticeably lacking in the foreground figures. Ghirlandaio himself occupies an unusually prominent position as the kneeling shepherd in the foreground pointing to the Child with his hand on his heart, demonstrating not only his authorship of the work, but his devotion to the subject.
Each puzzle box contains high-quality pieces packaged with a beautiful sacred art poster and insert that explains the meaning and significance of this timeless work of art.
Measures 27”W x 19”H when completed.
