Altar in the Forest Puzzle
In this enchanted forest shrine jigsaw puzzle, titled Altar in the Forest by Fuzichoco, we find ourselves at a Shinto shrine, nestled deep among a vast and ancient woodland of monolithic trees. A lovely young shrine maiden adorned in a hakama (a pleated skirt worn over her kimono), approaches with an arrangement of flowers to set before one of the altars with her prayers.
Shrine maidens, or miko, are altar girls of the Shinto religion who live and work at the shrines. Miko are known for their purity and virtue, and carry out various duties such as sealing and purification rituals, blessings and the casting out of evil spirits.
In Altar in the Forest, Fuzichoco once again manages to capture the beauty and tranquility in this serene setting with her dazzling imagination and brilliant use of colors. This painting with its magical properties will assuredly lift you out of any grey mood.
