Description: 

In conjunction with a Sister City visit from Worcester, MA to Pushkin, Russia in 1992, we brought supplies, puzzles and information and staged a jigsaw puzzle exhibition and demonstration in Pushkin in hopes of nurturing hand cut jigsaw puzzles. A graphic artist by name of Michail Drugov studied our puzzles and listened (through interpreters) to our explanations, and produced this unique 3-layered puzzle. Central image of fox is cut from double sheet of plywood; basic scene is cut from single sheet; figure pieces are "dropped" below basic scene by hand slicing two layers of ply off back. Irregular edges and color line cutting add to puzzle’s challenge and interest. Image of Russian bear flexing his arm on label also forms Drugov’s signature piece in puzzle.
