Looks like an old scroll, isn’t it? ๐Ÿ˜†

I love jigsaw puzzles! I love how I could take the time to slowly piece the whole picture together and feeling the satisfaction when it’s completed. ๐Ÿ˜€

Sadly I don’t get much of an opportunity to play one, because they can be really expensive here, or really cheap but the quality is so bad the pieces don’t even connect together. This time, my dad and I were feeling the enthusiasm, so we decided to go ahead and buy this 2,000-piece puzzle to play!

This particular puzzle is based on an actual famous Chinese painting called Along the River During the Qingming Festival, but with a couple of twists:

  • The people”you see in this puzzle are all bears! Pandas, polar bears, grizzly bears, brown bears, and they’re all funny! Some have cute backpacks, some wearing costumes, some rowing a boat, you get the idea!
  • The picture is modernised to reflect our current lifestyle now! I saw a bear taking selfie, another holding its phone to take pictures, I saw a Starbucks (yes, it’s that Starbucks!) and some vending machines, and even a UFO and what I think are aliens!

It was fun putting it together, and my favourite part was finding all the bears and see where they go on the picture. ๐Ÿ˜€

Do you like jigsaw puzzles? What pictures have you put together so far? Do let me know below!
