The Presentation of the Child Jesus 1000-Piece Puzzle



Art historians know little of this Northern European painter, but he uses dazzling colour to mesmerising effect in his Presentation at the Temple. Holy Mary’s mantle glows in lapis lazuli blue, the rarest of hues imported from Afghanistan. The blue of Saint Joseph’s robe is more muted, while Simeon’s tunic seems tinged with brown. Yet for all the delight for the eyes, this moment of joy is but a prelude to extended suffering. Baby Jesus, sitting up in the arms of His mother, is situated on a direct diagonal with the infant being stabbed by one of Herod’s soldiers. Saint Joseph, seemingly relegated to the outskirts of the scene, was intentionally placed below the brutal attack, a reminder that he will soon have to flee with his family from the murderous rage of Herod.


Contains high-quality pieces and elevated packaging, including a beautiful sacred art poster and insert explaining the meaning and significance of these timeless works of art.
