Elephant wooden interlocking burr puzzle

This 13 piece interlocking burr puzzle in the shape of an elephant has been made by Josef Pelikan since 1992. 
Hirokichi Yamanaka, the 3rd Master at Yamanaka Kumiki Works, designed and first made the elephant puzzle in 1931.  Since then many versions have been made.  This slightly modified version from the Pelikan Workshops is a very fine example of both the design and precision woodworking.

The level of difficulty is kept to medium because some of the pieces take on the obvious form of an elephant.  A truly beautiful piece of puzzle sculpture that would enhance anyone's puzzle collection.  This puzzle is finely crafted and shows the level of attention to detail that Pelikan is famous for, right down to the choice of wood to get the right colour for the right piece.

The Pelikan workshop uses a selection of both European woods including  maple, walnut, birch, ash, apple, pear, cherry, oak, beech, plum, and acacia as well as some more exotic woods like mahogany, ebony, begging, wenge, walnut, American, padank, rosewood, amaranth, Bubinga, owango, jarah, meranti, and iroko. 

Elephant size: 100mm tall.  140mm long.  Ear tip to ear tip 112mm.
