Take the three parts apart and put them back together, that is the objective of this challenging cast metal puzzle.

A word from the designer:
"The three pieces each have a spiral (vortex) body and two protrusions. When assembled together, each piece is unified into a flat object.

In order to undo this complex entanglement it will be necessary to unbind them three dimensionally."

Complete mind f*ck!
6 weeks. This piece of work took me 6 flippin' weeks to completely solve. I had it apart in about a week but getting it back together... yeah, not so much. This was by FAR the hardest of my now 20 piece Hanayama collection and still remains feared to this day. None-the-less, still one of my favorites. Beautiful to look at and sultry to handle (don’t know why they chose to display the underside of the piece in the gallery?) Every time my nephews visit they pull this one apart and it always takes me a couple of days to get back together. The only way to solve it is to get to know each piece intimately well. Really, really well. Then prepare to be mystified for the next several weeks of your life. If you're a true enthusiast like myself - this is a must have for your collection.

High complexity
I found this puzzle having high complexity and it always bring me to the same question - who thought about doing such puzzle? This is CRAZY hard and I spent hours trying to solve it. I finally did but I almost gave up. Great puzzle for those who are trying to challenge themselves.

Best series
I purchased from the brilliant puzzles folks all the Hanayama puzzle series about a year ago or so. I am still working on the last 3, however, did all the others already. I am so happy with the quality, service,, and price that I feel that the least I can do is put product reviews and tell you guys who read these lines how great these puzzles are. I am just waiting on new designs to be released and put my hands on them.

Elegant difficult sturdy
An attractive, fascinating, substantial puzzle. Requires a lot of concentration (for me). Enjoying it, and it has a lot of decorative value.
