Puzzle 1 000 pieces Hendrick Avercamp - Winter Landscape with Ice Skaters - Ravensburger and Rijks Museum
This puzzle is inspired by the Dutch painter Hendrick Avercamp (1585 - 1634), "Winter Landscape with Ice Skaters" c. 1608.
The high vantage point of this painting turns it into a sampler of human - and animal - activity during a harsh winter. Hundreds of people are out on the ice, most of them for pleasure, others working out of dire necessity. Avercamp did not shy away from grim details: in the left foreground crows and a dog feast on the carcass of a horse that has frozen to death.
