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 Hen is her eye; remove this small dowel and then take the puzzle apart one piece at a time.
Each puzzle is signed and comes with an artist statement.
Maple and leopard wood.
Approximately 8 in. from tail to beak, and 6 in. to top of crown.
