Ave Caesar!, 2022-05-31

I finally managed to finish the Caesar puzzle, and I have to say, the audience was really difficult. I would have preferred to have something easier waiting for me when I got back from Dortmund this time, but I was too stubborn to start anything else before this was finished. There’s one piece missing, but it’s impossible to see from this photo (it’s in the shadowy part of the image).

Ave Caesar! by Loup, Heye, 2000 pieces. Completed on May 31, 2022.

There seems to be both gladiatorial combat and chariot races in progress. In reality, these two forms of entertainment actually belong in different venues, chariot races in the circus and gladiatorial combat in the amphitheater. Not sure if the audience used to throw water melons at contestants πŸ™‚

The emperor looks bored.

Some of the wild beasts were in trouble…

… while others were doing just fine.

The puzzle is from 2004, and it’s excellent quality with a great fit. The arena part was great fun, but the audience was a bit too difficult. Still, I’m really glad that I got to do this puzzle, I thought I had missed the train on this one.

  1. Wow, 2000 pieces! I can see how the assembling the audience would be difficult — it’s what I call an overstuffed or crowded section or image for the puzzle. Here’s hoping your next puzzle is a bit easier to give your brain a break.
