Mirror Image

Mirror Image   Our own version of a classic wood puzzle, made from 3mm nickel plated wire. The object, contrary to what it appears, is to remove the handle, not the string. You can’t simply pull on the handle, as the string is tied to it and has a bead attached to complicate matters worse. A very well designed puzzle with a symmetric frame, hence the name Mirror Image. Produced at our PuzzleMaster shop in Canada for our own brand of Wire Puzzles.

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.
