Puzzle of the Day – The Black Last Supper

Traditionally, most Christian art depicts religious icons like Jesus and the apostles as white. This is because most of this art originated in white European countries, where the dominant races were white. Just as the Bible says that God created man in his own image, societies tend to depict God as looking like them. It helps people relate to Jesus if he looks like he could be an uncle or neighbor.

What many people don’t think about is that most of the Bible took place in Middle Eastern and North African countries like Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Syria. Therefore, it is very likely that Jesus and his apostles were actually not white, but instead black or Arabic. Today’s jigsaw puzzle of the day, The Black Last Supper puzzle by artist Bev Lopez, acknowledges this.

A supper is a supper, no matter who you share it with, and the significance of the moment can only increase if you feel spiritually connected with the people of the table. A better looking body, a taller body, darker hair or lighter skin doesn’t make any difference.

Get The Black Last Supper 1000 Piece 20″ x 27″ jigsaw puzzle from Puzzle Warehouse, assemble it, and it will remind you from time to time of the most important moments in your life, the people you most care about and what makes them so special to you: their soul. The significance of the image goes beyond its obvious religious connection and purpose and teaches a lesson everybody should know. Judging people based on their physical attributes or on any other similar feature is not only meaningless but also harmful.

Puzzle of the Day – Endearing Cat

What is soft, has a moist nose and loves to purr? Here is a hint: it says, “meow.”

Today’s jigsaw puzzle of the day is a special and sweet one: a cute and sleepy kitten packed in a lovely red dotted box – Endearing Cat.

This furry domestic mammal isn’t valued just for its companionship, but also for its ability to hunt vermin and household pests. Did you know that a cat sleeps two thirds of its life (65%), spends 25% cleaning itself and it eats and plays 5% of its life? Or that they use to purr not only when they are happy and comfortable, but also when they are afraid of something or someone or when they are in pain? And here is a fact that we are sure you will find very amusing: cats purr at the same frequency as a Diesel engine.

If your child wants a cat, but you still think that it is too early for him to get one, you can pleasantly surprise him with this fluffy 100 large pieces puzzle by Ravensburger. Everybody loves a cute kitten and enjoys even the sight of it, so the puzzle is bound to bring lots of joy in your house. With a finished size of 14.25″ X 19.3″, it’s just the perfect jigsaw puzzle to assemble and frame in your kids room. Or even in yours, if you’re the big cat lover we suspect and if you secretly like to purr.

Puzzle of the Day – Covered Bridge in Spring

The sun is shining over St. Louis, and the ice and snow has finally melted away. Because after winter there always comes spring, this week’s jigsaw puzzle of the day honors that wonderful season with the colorful 300 pieces jigsaw puzzle by SunsOut – Covered Bridge in Spring.

We believe that winter has its glow around holidays when you can go skiing or snowboarding and around Christmas and New Year’s Eve. After that, though, it starts to get old and may even start making you feel a bit melancholy: everything seems frozen.

We bet you can’t wait to see those trees blossom again and the green grass to cover the ground. And let us not forget about those sweet songs that birds will sing early in the morning or about those shy sunny rays. Oh! And the wonderful trips in the mountains or perhaps to the beach.

We all love spring because it is such a balanced season – not too hot, but also not too cold, not too dry but also not too rainy. One of its best parts is that you can leave your iPod home. Why? Well, it would be a shame not to enjoy the birds trill or the bees tingle.

If winter persists outside your house and our words have cruelly made you pine for sunshine, perhaps this spring themed jigsaw puzzle of the day can act as a surrogate until those warm spring days knock at your door, too.

Puzzle of the Day – Always Coca-Cola

This week’s jigsaw puzzle of the day speaks an universal language which has different flavors but an unmistakable color. Here is a hint: it was created in Atlanta, GA in 1886 by Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist. If your mouth whispered the slogan “Always Coca-Cola” you’re the winner.

“Delicious! Refreshing! Invigorating! Exhilarating!” “It had to be good to get where it is!” “The best friend thirst ever had?” “Whoever you are, whatever you do, wherever you may be, when you think of refreshment, think of ice cold Coca-Cola.” It is your “passport to refreshment.” If you hadn’t had the chance to hear these coca-cola slogans, ask your parents, or even better, ask your grandparents. I’m sure they will tell you more than a brief history of Coca-Cola.

Why I seem so confident about that? Well, it’s because the world’s famous brand always surprised and celebrated its customers. For example, there was a Centennial Special Edition in 1986 to celebrate Coca-Cola’s 100 years or a Coca-Cola 1987 Christmas Special (the cans had paintings of Santa Claus made by artist Haddon Sundblom) and they even thought about the musical part: easy to remember jingles. And because the Coca-Cola Company thought about everything, they even invented Coca-Cola Diet and Coca-Cola Zero…so you don’t have to choose between a bottle of coke and a diet.

But enough with the talking, because there is a wonderfully colorful 1000 pieces Coca-Cola puzzle that you might want to assemble at PuzzleWarehouse.

Enjoy!

Puzzle of the Day – Where’s Waldo, The Mighty Fruit Fight

Today’s jigsaw puzzle of the day should be twice as challenging as the regular one. Not only will you struggle to assemble 300 large pieces into one comprehensive picture but after you do, you will also have to find Waldo.

If you don’t know anyone with that name, now’s the time to meet the one and only Waldo. With a red-and-white striped shirt, glasses and a hat, you can’t miss him. He has been seen all over the world, but some people know him as Wally and other as Charlie. Nevertheless, he is the same guy, and has been created by British illustrator Martin Handford, for children.

The “Where’s Waldo” children books are full of illustrations depicting dozens of people involved in various activities, in which readers are challenged to find Waldo, who is hidden among the other characters. It’s not easy as it looks, and many of the illustrations contain red and white striped objects meant to confuse you. Finding Waldo can be just as entertaining as assembling the puzzle and you don’t have to be a child to appreciate the beauty of the drawings.

This wonderful jigsaw puzzle was made by TDC games and designed by Hanford himself and is 26″ x 19.5″. All materials are 100% recycled and biodegradable and you will definitely enjoy the 300 high quality pieces.
