Serhiy Grabarchuk is a famous Ukrainian puzzle designer who lives in Uzhgorod. The puzzle depicted on the piece of drawing that he sent me looked like a strange adornment weaved into a "coiffure"design.
If you put a glass carefully onto the completing puzzle, it becomes, indeed, a coaster. Using this when serving drinks to guests will no doubt create stimulating conversation. Theme: "Coiffure".

I really like this one. I only have about 4 or 5 of these puzzles, but the coaster is my favorite. It took me almost a year to solve (of course, I never worked on it for very long at a time, got too frustrated), but now I can get it either in 10 seconds or with my eyes closed. It's so beautiful when completed, and frustrating if you don't know the trick when apart.

This is the first Hanayama I ever tried and now i own about 20 of them, so yes I like the coaster. The solve is challenging enough and it's aesthetic in the solved state.

This one is beautiful in its look and has an intriguing effect.Easy to get apart but, difficult to put back together. Highly recommended!!

Disassembly is easy, in fact mine tends to fall apart a little too easily. Assembly is another matter and quite tricky. Nicely made.

This puzzle was a joy. It was small and flat, so I could carry it in my pocket or purse and pull it out any time I was waiting anywhere. I would also rate it an 8 in difficulty; it certainly took some tinkering. Highly recommended!
