Feel like a challenge? Bern Emmerich’s highly detailed painting of one of the most notorious incidents in Australian maritime history, the Mutiny on the Bounty—now a 1000-piece jigsaw—will satisfy your need.
Captain William Bligh was a man who could rise to a challenge. When the crew of the Bounty mutinied as they departed Tahiti in 1789, abandoning him and seventeen followers to a seven-metre-long ‘launch’, he managed to sail 5,800km to Timor in six gruelling weeks, even mapping part of the Australian coast as he went.
This remarkable story, and more of Bern Emmerich’s extraordinary work, can be found in Michael Sedunary’s William Bligh: a Stormy Story of Tempestuous Times and John Dickson’s M is for Mutiny: History by Alphabet.
A challenging puzzle that’s the perfect gift for history buffs and jigsaw aficionados alike.
