This 1000 piece puzzle is of the Isthmus of Auckland in 1859 and features its extinct volcanos. It is based on an artwork by Ferdinand Von Hochsetter & A Welker. 

Undulating shades of orange and pink describe the volcanic terrain of Tāmaki Makaurau showing scoria and cones, basaltic lava streams, and areas of clay and sandstone. Initially drawn in 1859 and in German, this map is one of many that depicted Aotearoa's geography for a European market.

This puzzle has been described as 'challenging' by some keen puzzlers so if you are looking for a difficult yet ultimately satisfying puzzle, then this is it.  Staff member, Rebecca took 3 days to complete this puzzle with her mother and said they really enjoyed it. "It wasn't easy but we really enjoyed it. It came together to reveal a beautiful image and we learnt about volcanoes in Auckland".

The 1000 piece puzzle is made with soy based inks and recycled and sustainably grown timber. It measures 68 x 48cm when fully assembled. The puzzle pieces come in a soft fabric bag which fits easily in the sturdy cardboard box it comes in.

This beautiful puzzle is made possible by Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki and Lettuce Puzzles.
