Nostalgia - Jackson Pollock Puzzle

Several years ago, my parents were cleaning out their basement and given my inclination for the arts, thought I would enjoy having this puzzle they bought in the 1960s. It's of Jackson Pollock's painting entitled, Convergence from 1952 whose home is at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York. On the side of the box it is touted as "the world's most difficult jigsaw puzzle (over 500 pieces)". With the dime-sized pieces, and given the number of attempts we've made at it without getting much further than the edges, I can believe it!

Just in case you were wondering, this is the complete painting - without any missing pieces.
