The Masterpiece is a non-member land and ocean den item. It was released on May 26, 2016, and it can be purchased when any member submits a drawing at the Painting activity located in the Art Studio.

Despite being a non-member item and having no members lock in creation, they could originally only be created by Members. However, all Jammers were granted the ability to make them during the 2016 Jamaalidays.
Instead of a regular Diamond symbol on the item, it appears in an inventory with a multicolored Diamond.
If a Masterpiece is not accepted, the artist will receive a Jam-A-Gram regarding the disapproval, and Diamonds spent on it will be automatically refunded.
The item view of this has a magnifying glass button in the top right corner of the item that can be clicked to see a close-up view of the painting.
Jammers cannot gift or trade their Masterpiece until it has been reviewed and approved by AJHQ.
Despite AJHQ saying that it can take up to one week for a Jammer's Masterpiece to be approved, it is normally a lot faster. Once approved, the Jammer will receive a Jam-A-Gram saying that their Masterpiece has been approved and is now available to gift, recycle, and trade.
Unlike the close-up views, the items themselves do not include a name-tag for the artist's name.
The nametag in the close-up view for other Jammers' Masterpieces can be clicked to open the Jammers' Player Cards.
As of August 4, 2016, Jammers can put their own Masterpieces on their Jammer Wall.
When released, the No Frame option was titled as a Print Frame but was later changed.
Jammers cannot edit or load another Jammer's .ajart file, which can be used to save a Masterpiece in progress.
Sometimes it will not allow Jammers to upload a masterpiece.
Initially, it was possible to upload a picture and use that for a masterpiece if the file's extension was overwritten to .ajart, but that is no longer available; thus, it says, "This masterpiece cannot be loaded." or a different pop-up message.
There is a technical problem that sometimes causes the masterpiece to never be reviewed, remaining in a player's inventory perpetually.
It was originally designed for use in land dens only, but that changed after an update on April 27, 2017.
Sometimes when attempting to purchase a masterpiece, a message will pop up saying that the purchase could not be made and to try again later. This is most likely because the user's den inventory is full.
