The Real Women of Greek Myths: 1,000-Piece Puzzle
In this beautifully detailed jigsaw puzzle, rediscover the lives and stories of the women of Greek myths, from Medusa and Medea to Helen, Euridice, Aphrodite, Phaedra, Artemis, and others. These classic figures, mortals and goddesses alike, are portrayed with expanded facts and interpretations by author, broadcaster, and classicist Natalie Haynes. As you build the puzzle, look for Pandora and her jar, Medusa with snakes for hair, and other characters with their signifiers and relevant details. This is a fun way to teach mythology to young learners, refresh your own knowledge, and see things from a new perspective.
A large fold-out poster of the artwork, by Norwegian illustrator Natalie Foss, accompanies the jigsaw. It also includes original essays by the author on each character, expanding on the stories, relationships and context surrounding them.
