Product Review of Limited Edition Christmas Themed Jigsaw

It wouldn't be quite the Christmas lead up for me if I were ever denied a first-hand look at artist, Roy Trower's yearly Christmas scenes for Ravensburger's limited edition jigsaw puzzles

Here follows a review of the puzzle available for Christmas 2017 called Which One's Santa? and it is number 21 in the series overall

The Artist

For the last ten
 years of so, artist, Roy Trower has landed the gig to create beautifully illustrated Christmas scenes for Limited Edition jigsaw puzzles by Ravensburger. The artwork involves 2D skills, from sketching out the designs to hand painting them. Trower favours using a mix of medium mainly
water-colours, gouaches; and colouring pencils

The Theme 

As 70's music group, Slade said in their 'Merry Christmas Everybody' tune:
'it's the time that every Santa has a ball' ; 
and there's FOUR mighty fine Santas in this design, (perhaps not having a ball) but being kindly and social nonetheless, and they all look pretty convincing as the real McCoy!

The 'real' Santa is usually centrestage in Trower's designs, so, as you assemble this quality jigsaw of 1000 pieces, you might wonder if Santa is a gate crashing guest at the Christmas fancy dress party depicted

Other villagers have been more original with their fancy dressing. Mother Mary is there. And can you spot the bauble and the Christmas pud? There's a couple of Christmas stars running and a boy mimicking the snowman 

The scene is outdoors once again, on a snowy winters night, and there is a nod to all the traditional activities and festivities of the season

Comment although the figures are smaller on the picture than the scene from last year's edition this latest jigsaw is marginally easier to do in comparison.
