Re: The last piece.

My brother in law is a jigsaw puzzle tragic. The more difficult the puzzle, the better the likes it. One of my photos promised to be challenging as a jigsaw so I had a copy made as a 1000 piece puzzle for him for Christmas.

It took him nearly three days. He invited me to witness the final piece.

The timing of this is good. My mother is with us for the next few months, and I bought a jigsaw to entertain her. It turned out far more difficult than I thought, and she gave up after about an hour. My wife and I spent the next four days, on and off, completing it. Now this puzzle looks far more difficult, so the intriguing question is, Did he start it this Christmas or the previous Christmas, Mike?

The rock patterns on the puzzle, his arms and his line of sight all lead to that final piece, but the window leads outside. You write that it was deliberate, to link back to the outside world  and I see that now, but Roel’s crop works well too.
