This is no ordinary jigsaw puzzle! When finished, the puzzle becomes a free-standing, three-dimensional folding screen for your desk or other small spaces. The celebrated painter Ogata Kôrin (Japanese, 1658–1716) depicted irises in many variations and media, and they became a standard theme among his followers. The stately irises reproduced on this puzzle are from a pair of folding screens by Korin and reference the love poem “The Ise Stories (Ise monogatari).” The reverse of our puzzle features an eighteenth-century Noh robe with a delicate pattern of wild pinks, chrysanthemums, bush clover, Chinese bellflowers, and miscanthus grass on a deep red background. A robe of this type would have been used in the Noh play Aoi no ue, based on an episode from The Tale of Genji.
Includes 456 pieces and stand. Plastic. 9''H x 17 7/8''W when assembled.
