This relatively easy puzzle with a robust theme (pictoral hint to the right) and a rather high theme density marked its constructor's debut on our pages. After completing the puzzle (spoiler), please click here for a "midrash" that explains the theme entries and relates some of the story of how this puzzle was conceived and brought to its present form.
