Wild in the Jungle, a 500-piece word search and jigsaw puzzle

This art puzzle is a collage of lettering composed from Hong Kong’s celebrated iconic neon signs photographed by William Furniss, a Hong Kong-based artist who has collected these images over the last few decades. What makes this so special is that many of these signs no longer exist.

Using this neon alphabet, William has created a jungle of neon letters in the form of a puzzle to represent the city of Hong Kong. Intermixed within this organic matrix of letters, William has hidden the names of 42 different wild animals to illustrate Hong Kong’s stunningly beautiful natural environment. Finally his artwork has been cut into a 500-piece jigsaw puzzle. William was inspired by the close affinity that exists between the city and nature, a relationship unique to Hong Kong, and one that is brought to life through this inventive brain-teaser.

Can you solve the jigsaw puzzle and then find the animals? This fun and rewarding artwork puzzle is 24x18 inches in size and takes one person around five hours to complete.

 

 

 

500小塊,叢集成圖,找出單詞!

這拼圖有着許多霓虹字母,就是一幅藝術拼貼,由留駐香港的藝術家William Furniss,於自己過去數十年在這城巿拍下的經典霓虹招牌照片中取材創作。格外有意思的,是這些招牌不少已不存在了。

William從霓虹招牌照片中找出全套26個英文字母,以拼圖形式創建了一個「霓虹字母叢」,來代表香港這座城市。字母並不順序卻有系統的矩陣中,隱藏了42種不同野生動物的名稱,勾勒着香港令人驚歎的自然環境。最後,作品給切割成500塊的拼圖。William的靈感源自城市與自然之間那份親密無間;這關係是香港所獨有的,並通過創意滿滿的腦筋急轉彎鮮活起來。

你能拼出圖,找得動物的名字嗎?這興味盎然的藝術拼圖只是24x18吋大小,一個人花5小時應可大功告成。
