Four pieces of the same shape are loosely interlocked together to make up this puzzle.  All of the pieces fit loosely and it seems as though they would be easy to take apart.  However, one is soon at a loss, as the puzzle give no hint about how it is solved.  The trick is to not think too hard, but to ease your mind as you take up the challenge.  The American Bram Cohen designed this puzzle.  The theme is loose.

The simplicity of jigsaw puzzles is deceptive. While the concept is very straightforward – find the pieces and fix them together – there is a surprising level of mental activity required to carry out the steps needed to complete a puzzle. Psychological studies have identified a number of thought processes that are required to undertake what is in fact a complex process of identifying shapes and images and relating them to an overall pattern. More importantly, solving jigsaw puzzles is a great work out for the brain and can actually have therapeutic benefits.
