1000 PIECE JIGSAW PUZZLE
INCLUDES POSTER

Robert Bateman's Ghost of the North is of a great gray owl sitting on an aspen tree and it makes for a very challenging 1000 piece puzzle. "The great gray owl is truly a ghost of the north. It is fleeting and silent. It seems to be the largest of the owls, but it is mostly feathers and weighs much less than the great horned owl. Its wing feathers have downy edges like other owls, making its flight totally silent. The colors are subdued, and the patterns provide excellent camouflage. I wanted to portray this ghostliness in the painting. This is why I gave everything a flat and hazy look. the colors are restrained, and the owl blends perfectly with the tree. The tree is an aspen, one of the typical species of the owl's habitat in the boreal forest." -- Robert Bateman

5 of 5 A challenge, but not impossible! June 22, 2020
Reviewer: Danielle from Ontario  
I loved doing this puzzle! It wasn’t as difficult as I first thought it would be. Maybe it’s my method. It would have been incredibly hard, if not impossible, if I searched for each piece as I needed it.
After assembling the frame, I sort the pieces that are similar, and then using the image on the box, I figure out where each piece belongs and place it roughly where it goes, referencing the edges. I end up with islands of assembled pieces that begin to attach as if by magic!
It’s not an uncommon method, I’m sure, and may be the easiest way to assemble a puzzle with irregularly shaped pieces. :)

5 of 5 BEAUTIFUL AND A CHALLENGE August 1, 2018
Reviewer: PuzzleLover from MN  
This puzzle was a challenge to say the least.  Took me 5 months to complete but I did not work it every day.  It became like a great novel...I didn’t want it to end.  It is now being framed and will hang on the wall.  This is a gorgeous puzzle when completed.  Love Cobble Hill quality.  I wish all the Robert Bateman were 1000 pieces.

5 of 5 DIFFICULT March 5, 2018
Reviewer: G & V from Ontario  
Had puzzle on table for about 4 weeks. Did a little bit each day ( some days we found some pieces and some days we didn't). Had to persevere to complete but well worth it in the end. Took picture of the finished puzzle and past the puzzle on ( haven't heard how their doing and that was a while ago). Great puzzles and looking for another to do.
