This is such a beautiful, well-made puzzle! I own many wooden puzzles including old hand cut and the new laser cut and this is one of my favorite! The delightfully themed whimsies (shapes, silhouettes, figurals) are one of the reasons I love it. There is a delightful dragon whimsy. It is a complicated (several piece) whimsy but it is wonderful and not to be missed. So there are TWO "hidden" dragons in this puzzle! The small dragon within the puzzle and the large dragon that is the illusion of the picture. Several of the shapes/whimsies within this puzzle are formed of many pieces. The arched bridge has the most with 7. The dragon has 4 pieces, the two pagodas and one warrior have 3 pieces while the crouching warrior and several others are made up of 2 pieces. I do not believe there are any simple one-piece whimsies unless you count the kanji for Peace which is made up of two seperate pieces situated together in the puzzle. It is not a firmly interlocking puzzle, which contributes to the challenge. Many amazing puzzles old and new are not interlocking, but if you must have a tightly interlocking puzzle, this one may not be for you. That being said, I believe this is a wonderful, well made, beautiful and fun puzzle that any puzzle lover would be delighted to own. I own several Artifact puzzles and highly recommend them, this one included!
