Photo Hunters - Wooden

Man and Woman Wooden Puzzle Sculpture
I purchased this man and woman wooden puzzle from the Signals catalog years ago when it went on clearance. I can't find the artist's website any longer, but I remember that he also offered a man-man and a woman-woman puzzle as well. The kids often ask why the woman's heart is at the bottom, and I tell them that is where the babies are made with love. Of course this wooden puzzle was photographed on our wooden birch floor with naturally reflected sunlight.

March 13, 2008 Edited to add - I found a card for this piece and it is called "Yu & Ai" which means "needless to say love and affection" in Japanese. It is made and signed by Joseph Kinnebrew. You can still purchase them at Pique.

That's a great shot of the wooden puzzles. I like your answer about why the heart of the woman is located where it is. Have a great weekend.

Thank you for sharing.

A great pair. And yes, the position of the heart is a bit - unorthodox, let's say ;-)

Have a great week!

Gran said...

Perfect selection this week with the wooden puzzle. Your answer to concerning the woman's heart placement was great!

Thanks for your visit. Have a great new week!

I was going to ask you the same thing: which begs the question: why is the Daddy making babies with his heart? LOLOL

I'm so sorry! I couldn't resist!
