Standard wooden jigsaw puzzle – Koran Cover

I never realized that there can be beautiful images in Korans just as there are in the Bible. This is the leather front cover of an old Koran. My father sent me a transparency of it, probably as a sly way to point out that there is a whole world out there beyond our western European tradition. The cover is old. You can see that in the picture. I did not “clean” the image up in Photoshop; I wanted the image to show its age. Koran Cover and the Elephant and the Mouse ( blog dated September 15th, 2009 ) are my most popular small, standard puzzles. They are both relatively easy because the wide borders can be put together first.
