4/8 fri – Artifact – Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797-1861) “Cats”, 258 pieces – challenging; lots of little black & white spotted cats, on a blue background, with many little red tags (name tags or activities?) … so hard – Ash & me & various PCAs (Abbey, Felicia) & nurses

Artifact Puzzles – “This 258 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle shows a 19th century woodblock print by Utagawa Kuniyoshi of 53 cats and one octopus (the signature animal of Kuniyoshi). The full title of this work is “Cats Suggested as the 53 Stations of Tokaido.” The puzzle pieces have a grid design with numerous cat-shaped whimsy pieces running amok (click on the small picture below the puzzle image to see example pieces), and were designed by Seattle artist Tara Flannery.  This puzzle has a straight edge, but it’s harder than average. “
