Fantasy Garden 1000 Pc Puzzle
Fun, functional art with a purpose.
This 1000 piece puzzle is created through a collaboration between a young Black woman in Brooklyn, NYC and a NYC based artist, Nidhi Mariam Jacob.
Nidhi is an independent artist, muralist, and art teacher from Bangalore, India. Her stunning flower designs are infused with the rich memories of her childhood - long evening walks with her grandfather, the scent of orange champakam and jasmine flowers, or watching her mother tend to her garden. A haliconia bunch, wild lantana, or a banyan tree all lend their influence to the magical realism of her inspired botanical creations.
Not just a cool puzzle, each sale supports both a rising artist and a micro-company getting started in a very complicated retail environment - which is why for the first time in many years, I've broken my "not made in China" rule.
Mandi had a contract with a US puzzle manufacturer signed but when covid hit she was too small to get production from them and was forced to move production, for now, to China. Her goal is to move production to the US within the next 2 years.
