1000 piece jigsaw puzzle of popular artwork A Village Festival by Pieter Brueghel, part of the collection of the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge Collection. Jigsaw puzzle made by Pomegranate.

This painting shows a village festival enjoying a festival held in honour of the saints' day for St. Hubert and St. Anthony. To the right of the painting, you can see a procession carrying statues of the saints as they make their way to church. Workers would ordinarily work 6 day weeks with a day off on Sunday. This festival would have given them a much-needed extra day of holiday. Brueghel has contrasted the indulgence and misbehaviour of some of the villagers with moments of happiness and care from others - much like the constitution of our own communities today.

Pieter Brueghel the Younger (1564 - 1638) was a Flemish painter. His artworks, just like this one, often focussed on the everyday life of the lower classes.
