The Magic of Mozart

Catalog Code: 
A- 29
Description: 

While the Armstrong family has always loved wood puzzles, serious involvement began in 1990 when our son Conrad and I began to cut new puzzles. Puzzle pictured here was cut by me in 1991 out of a large poster advertising a Mozart opera festival. I "revised" the scene by cutting out Mozart’s hand and opera names from other sections of poster and laying them on top of the central image and "double cutting" them to fit into central section as if Mozart's hand were writing the score just above the opera names. Areas dropped out of central section are shown along side of puzzle with area shaped like hand left uncut. Puzzle can be assembled and displayed in several different ways.  However, faced with Conrad’s clearly superior cutting skills (see example displayed in this exhibit and on Conrad’s web site at: www.newpuzzles.com), I shifted my focus to restoration, collection, study and display of old puzzles and only cut for selected charitable causes.
