Product Description

This spiral-shaped puzzle features an ancient ammonite fossil with 117 branchy pieces. The Spiral Puzzle is a new twist on the classic jigsaw puzzle where the edge coils into the center. Usually you start assembling a puzzle from the edge and work inwards. However, with a Spiral Puzzle the edge winds inside the puzzle, mixing the interior and the exterior.

ARTWORK
The puzzle features a photograph of an Ammonite fossil. Ammonites are extinct cephalopods related to octopi and squid which roamed the seas from 200 million years ago to 66 million years ago. As they grew, they added more chambers onto their shell, creating a spiral. The ammonite inhabited the largest chamber and filled the rest with buoyant fluid. Their fossils feature beautiful and intricate suture patterns where the walls of their shell meet the outside. The branchy shapes of the pieces are based on these patterns.

WHIMSY PIECES
The puzzle contains 2 multipiece ammonite whimsies.

made with math, science, + lasers
Since 2011, we've been crafting plywood puzzles that combine the artistry of classic jigsaws with the possibilities of new technology. We use custom software inspired by natural patterns to grow the intertwining shapes of the puzzle pieces. The organic forms are cut from plywood by a laser, resulting in a uniquely challenging puzzle crafted from premium materials. Each puzzle is made by us at our studio in the Catskill Mountains.
