Escher Welle

Escher Welle This puzzle is reminiscent of the work of MC Escher, the 20th century Dutch artist.  The object is to fit all of the wooden sections into the frame. The pieces are slightly deceiving since some are joined together to make larger segments.  Made by Jean-Claude Constantin. Jean-Claude Constantin lives in Germany, where he designs and manufactures many different wood and metal puzzle, as well as magic tricks.

Trying to see how the pieces fit and re-assessing where they can go if they do not fit is a good exercise to check and re-evaluate the choices. Each piece can only come in one place, so there is no compromise and negotiation that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to continually re-evaluate his decisions and learns to be patient with the process because it is an integral part of the game.
