Waskahigan Watchi (house mountain in Cree, and also known as Rundle Mountain) serves as the striking backdrop to Vermillion Lakes in this beautiful painting by Calgary artist Sharon Lynn Williams.
The iconic ridge and surrounding landscape calls us back to revisit it again and again at various times of day, and at different seasons of the year. Every moment in this special place is worth savouring. In 'A Different Glory', Sharon Lynn highlights and juxtaposes the varied and contrasting elements that elevate our spirits when we are exposed to mountain life: the changing tone and shade of colours in the sky and clouds; the shadows playing against the subtle relief of the ridge face; the aliveness of seasonally evolving flora and fauna; the fluidity of water against the relative stillness of thrusted rock sheets.
Designed and made in Canada., in support of the Mountain Muskox Mentorship Program. You can find out more but Mountain Muskox by reading this excellent article in Macleans Magazine.
I love my Stumpcraft puzzles❣️. The room fills up with the aroma of burnt wood helping me feel like I am sitting by a wood stove. The pieces are individually shaped and sturdy. Then when you think you are completed you are sent on the adventure of finding whispy figures.
This is my second puzzle from Stumpcraft. These puzzles are simply amazing and a terrific challenge to do. Everyone that has seen these are also amazed at their detail and craftsmanship. I am looking at the next one to purchase. Keep up the great work !! Derrin M.
Loved the puzzle - an amazing experience!
My teenage daughter and I just finished "A Different Glory", and I wanted to thank you for making these amazing puzzles. The artwork is of course stunning, but even beyond that, the thought and creativity that you put into the puzzle piece shapes is simply amazing. It's wonderful to see the individual animal, climber and foliage-shaped pieces at the outset, but then as you start placing pieces they fit together into even larger hidden pictures like the horse and rider and buffalos. On top of that, the character of the shapes change through the various parts of the puzzle: flowy in the water section, foliage and animals in the reed beds and forests, turning blocky through the mountain, and then transitioning to swirly sky pieces! Simply brilliant! This is our second StumpCraft puzzle (we bought the Badlands last year), and we will definitely be back for more! Thanks again for an amazing experience!
Fun Beautiful Puzzle
The picture is beautiful, however the actual puzzle is even better! Extremely good quality, very difficult from your usual puzzle, but so fun to build. I have already purchased a second one to do.
A whole new puzzle experience
This puzzle is amazing. Not only is it beautiful, challenging and of incredible quality but the way the pieces are cut differently (and uniquely!) depending on what region they're from adds another interesting layer to piece-finding. I love all the hidden easter eggs as well. A true work of art.
