L’Adorazione, 2022-09-19

A painting from 1931 by Italian futurist painter Luigi Colombo, who also used the name Fillìa. There’s only the Italian title on the box, the word adorazione means ‘adoration, worship’. I didn’t know of this artist before, but many of his paintings look like they would make very entertaining puzzles (here are some images). He sadly died at the early age of 31 in 1936.

This was the last puzzle I did in Dortmund before returning to Helsinki a week ago. I actually didn’t expect to finish it before leaving, but it turned out to be easier than I thought. I did the red ball first, then the blue cross, then the black shape, then the brown shape and finally the background. Even the background wasn’t too difficult, there was so much variation in shades. Loved it!

  1. Looks like quite the tough puzzle to me, even with variations in shade. With the title of this puzzle and the image of the cross, it seems this is a spiritual/religious type image. If so, I wonder what the other objects (the red sphere, the two pyramid shaped objects, and the black object) represent.

    • It does seem like a religious theme, but I have no idea what the other symbols represent. Probably nothing real, more likely something that the artist made up.

      I was also expecting this to be much more difficult, but in the end, I finished it in a week.
