Peter Chapman of Bent Mountain, Virginia has created a fantastic menagerie out of wood.
His puzzles are movable sculptures; with his saw he has cut the wood in such a way that when you handle the puzzle it becomes animated.
Each puzzle has a surprise inside of it and you have to take it apart to find it! The "key" for the Great Horned Owl is between its tail and the stump it's sitting on; remove the owl from the stump and then take the puzzle apart one piece at a time, to reveal little mouse inside.
Each puzzle is signed and comes with an artist statement.
Approximately 12 1/2 in. high (to tips of ears).
Walnut and cherry.
