Four different kaleidoscopes were used to make this quadriptych. (4 paneled piece - I just loved the word!)

No one can knock Robbie off THAT perch . . . except maybe Lela! LOL

Pat, you KNOW that I'm the good girl. I wouldn't do that! :~)

Oops! I missed your follow up comment Pat! And thank you. That's right. Mischievous Jan started it, and then tried to blame me!! Look out, she'll be pushing Robbie off his perch of naughtiest kid in Jigidi!! LOL

Jan, I'm sorry to point this out, but it was NOT Kirsten who started it, but YOU, with your very first comment about quadriptych! So you have only yourself to blame! Of course, that means that we have you to thank for all the fun with this name-game! :-)))

JiggyBelleS

Thanks, Mandy! That will certainly be "interesting!" LOL

monza006

Love the concept Jan - and good luck sorting out what to call it in future!!! Thanks!

JiggyBelleS

So, we now have: kaleidotetraptych, Kal-tych, Polyptych, Half-Fours and QuadKals. Hmmmmmmmm........

RandomWorship

Hee, hee!!

And I'll have you know that I speek gooder English!! LOL

And, for it's simplicity, I like QuadKals!!!

JiggyBelleS

BonnieJack - that is Great name! I love it!

So, we now have: kaleidotetraptych, Kal-tych, Polyptych and Half-Fours! Hmmmmmmmm........

BonnieJack

Beautiful. Good job well done Jan.
How about Half-fours?

JiggyBelleS

PJ - Your English is better than Kirsten's Australian and my American versions of English!

I think 'Kal-tych' is good!

Doing more research (I have no idea why), I have found that there is a more general term used for multiple panel artworks. It is POLYPTYCH. However, "TYCH" means fold and these art pieces were usually hinged. So, we could avoid these difficult words altogether and simply call them kaleido panels or "Kaleidos X 4" or QuadKals. LOL

Kirsten - you started all this nonsense!!

puzzlejan

Copy and paste is fine, and it's a wondrous word - but what about us who will have to try reading it? OK, English is not my first language, so I suggest 'kal-tych'....

Copy and paste, my love. Copy and paste!!!!

JiggyBelleS

Kirsten - I am dying here! Can you imagine trying to use that "name" every time you post one! LOL. But, it IS a great name, so who knows!!!

RandomWorship

You are such an innovator Jan! First you invent kaleido boards, a whole new genre for Jigidi. And now a quadriptych!!! Brilliant!! And I LOVE the name, and think you should keep it.

Or you could run a competition for your fans to find a new word. They're a clever bunch your fans, with some real wordsmiths amongst them. And some imaginative folks, who make it up as they go along, but sell it so convincingly, that it's totally believable!!

I'd like to kick things off with a kaleidotetraptych!!!

Jan, you are so creative! I love this new layout!

JiggyBelleS

Thank you so much, Judy! Coming from such a talented puzzler as yourself, I am very flattered! Now that Christmas is over, I will be experimenting more.

HeyJudeNM

Wonderful idea and beautiful execution. You produced a real work of art. Thanks for using all of your tools! Keep bringing them on; we love it!!!

JiggyBelleS

Sorry to discombobulate all of you! But, we gotta have fun with new ideas and new avatars!
(no, it is not Maggie, Ardy, it's a "cousin."
:D

ringleader

Try 4 halves = one whole. Hope now my comment is correctly completed. LOL

ringleader

BTW - Great puzzle. Love the concept and your use of it. I know about triptychs but this is my first introduction to quadriptychs Thanks, Jan.

ringleader

There are four halves here, right? And one puzzle, right? Therefore, 4 halves + one whole.

I've been wondering who the dog is in this avatar. Please don't tell me it's Maggie with both eyes made white. And while all the changes have been cute and great and delightful, I'm ready for smiling Maggie to come back.

puzzlejan

Jan - so nice, fun, confusing, logical - and innovative!!!! Glad to see your new ideas ....

pdevredis

Awww, why not?! That sounds so wonderfully precise and confusing at the same time! LOL!

JiggyBelleS

You know how WE like to fiddle with our tools! This one was fun to do! I'm glad you liked it. However, it will NOT be called a quadriptych! LOL

pdevredis

Oh, my, another Jiggy invention, like boards! Super cool!!!!!!!! Love the concept and the execution! :-)))))))))
