Gibsons Lifting The Lid Buckingham Palace Jigsaw Puzzle (1000 pieces)
Lifting the Lid - Buckingham Palace by artist Andy Tudor is a high quality 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle from Gibsons.
Lifting the Lid is a humorous and detailed illustration of a chaotic Buckingham Palace. At first we see the regular shape of Buckingham Palace, but upon closer inspection we see that two separate events are taking place within. The front of the palace is being opened up as if it were a life sized doll’s house to reveal all the working and goings on in the Royal household. There is a Spring clean in full swing. There is also a knighthood ceremony attended by the great and the good. The Queen can be seen concentrating as she wields her ceremonial sword. But take a closer look and you will see a calamitous event is occurring before our very eyes. A large room, that for over sixty five years has housed all sorts of gifts given to the Queen, has been opened, setting free a whole range of animals and exotic birds. Corgis scurry through the rooms knocking over maids and butlers, parrots squawk and doves coo as they make their escape. A right royal commotion! The Household Cavalry dressed in their best uniforms are seen trying to establish order, unfortunately despite being trained to re-assemble a tank blindfolded, they have no experience catching pygmy hippos and are making a bit of a hash of it! Look even closer and you may see the actual royal throne and little prince George as he rides his bike through the chaos.
