The Museum Shop has produced a jigsaw puzzle from the painting "Danish artists at the Osteria La Gensola in Rome" by Ditlev Blunck. Many of the jigsaw pieces are shaped to reflect the theme of the image. Size: 87 mm x 125 mm. 40 pieces approximately. You can find Thorvaldsen to the right in the painting and all the painters in the picture are represented with works in Thorvaldsen’s collection of paintings.
The snake-shaped ring is a copy of a gold ring that Thorvldsen regularly wore.
The copy was cast after an amulet capsule bought by Thorvaldsen during his long stay in Rome from 1797 to 1838.
