Educa manufactured this puzzle in 1995 and it is the first edition of this puzzle. A second edition appeared in 1996 with a slightly different box design. It has been during some time the largest jigsaw puzzle version of the Sistine Chapel, by Michelangelo. Later, Educa published a 18000 piece version.
This puzzle is like NEW, with all the pieces SEALED inside the original plastic bag. The box is in very good condition, with some shelf wear and a tear on a corner, as you can see in the photographs. The poster is in excellent condition.
Since this is probably the most famous artwork by Michelangelo, there are different puzzle versions in the market in different sizes. However, this one by Educa is particularly rare. In the altar wall of the Sistine Chapel, you can find the fresco of the Universal Judgement.
