Educa manufactured this puzzle in 1996 and it is the second edition of this puzzle. A first edition appeared in 1995 with a slightly different box design. It has been during some time the largest jigsaw puzzle version of the Sistine Chapel, by Michelangelo. Recently, Educa published a 18000 pieces version, which is available in most stores today.
This puzzle is like NEW, with all the pieces SEALED inside the original plastic bags. The box is in very good condition, except for some shelf wear and a tear in one of the corners of the lid.
Since this is probably the most famous artwork by Michelangelo, there are different puzzle versions in the market in different sizes. However, this one by Educa is particularly rare. In the altar wall of the Sistine Chapel, is the fresco of the Universal Judgement.
During the 90’s Educa published some of their most beautiful large jigsaw puzzles.
