This is not your typical jigsaw puzzle. It is very challenging because it consists of 3 different images sitting on top of each other and forming one blended image.
The creators Carnovsky are a Milan based art and design duo compromising of Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla. They are best known for their RGB project, which was first presented at Milan Design Week in 2010 and has since been showcased in numerous international exhibitions.
It is a high-quality product. There are 500 nice solid pieces which come in a sturdy paper bag. You also get 3 pairs of viewing glasses (Blue, Green and Red) and a copy of the Ocean artwork print.
Why the colored viewing glasses? You will need them (or use your phone to scan a QR code to acts as the lenses) in order to discern the 3 images. I tried solving the puzzle without using the glasses and was only able to complete the border.
When you put on the red glasses, for example, you see only the image that makes it through the filter. The same for the blue and the green. For me the blue lenses were too dark and it was difficult to work with that image. But the red and green really popped.
This is a challenging and fun puzzle. Don't give up. You will be rewarded with a beautiful 19.7 inches x 19.7 inches result.
