Zen Puzzles are hand designed, heirloom quality, wooden jigsaw puzzles crafted with beautiful images, elegant designs, and wonderful, whimsical, figural pieces. We create giclées of our images using state-of-the-art, wide-format printers. We mount them to FSC certified Birch wood sourced in the USA, and design and cut each unique wooden jigsaw puzzle with extraordinarily high quality standards. We are proud to make our eco-friendly Zen Puzzles right here in the USA. The number of pieces in our puzzles varies slightly because we hand-design our puzzles with unique cuts and figural pieces. Product information for our Summer Hummingbird wooden jigsaw puzzle is listed above when a size is selected.
This wonderful photograph called out to me after viewing well over 100,000 photos of hummingbirds–not because I was cooked and never wanted to see another hummingbird for the rest of my life, but because of how lusciously the image evokes the feeling of summertime and how well and clearly it captures the flight of this hummingbird in summer. The flowers falling out of focus into the background gave me a sensation of having a beautiful dream, and the colors and light in the photograph, in addition to the intensity of the hummingbird, uplifted my spirit and reminded me that I can always feel peace–I just have to remember to get out of the way more often.
I felt it would make a wonderful addition to our artisanal, wooden jigsaw puzzle collection. After designing the small and medium puzzles and making the first cuts, I am very pleased with the outcome. The giclee fine art print of this image is stunning, and I hope you enjoy the figural pieces I designed into the puzzles! Whether you’re a hummingbird enthusiast or not, this puzzle is bound to uplift your spirits, too, unless you absolutely hate summer. In that case, email us, and I’ll see what I can do about making a puzzle of the inside of a dark cave on a cold, moonless night. Filled with spiders. And rats. And mold.
