Mouth and Foot Painting Artists release puzzling new product for children
The Mouth and Foot Painting Artists (MFPA) has released a set of four children's jigsaw puzzles featuring the artwork of Japanese members Elichi Minami and Ryosuke Nishioka.

The jigsaw set comes with a set of four puzzles which are accompanied by illustrations of what each scene should look like upon completion. Each jigsaw puzzle has 48 pieces with the finished size of each - 263 x 234 mm. The jigsaws are suitable for children aged four and up.

Featuring lively scenes of splendid aquatic life, the picturesque harbour and cheerful animals enjoying a camp fire, Minami and Nishioka's artwork will excite any youngster with a passion for puzzles.

Founded in 1956 by a group of European artists, the MFPA is a self-help organisation which gives people with disabilities the opportunity to fulfil their creative ambitions while still maintaining financial independence by selectively selling their artworks.

The MFPA was established in Australia in 1971 and currently has 16 members around the country.

To become a student member an artist must qualify by painting using a brush held in either their mouth or foot, having lost the use of their hands through an illness or accident. Student members receive scholarships for art supplies and tuition. Once an artist becomes a full member or associate they are guaranteed a salary for life, even if they are unable to continue painting.

To purchase the children's jigsaw puzzle set for $19.95 visit www.mfpa.com.au where it can be ordered online or by calling (02) 9698 3933.
