Hanayama Difficulty Level 5 – Very hard
The object of this brilliant cast metal puzzle is to take the two interlocked loops apart and take them out of the surrounding planet-like structure, then get the puzzle back together again. The puzzle was designed for Hanayama by Oskar van Deventer of The Netherlands and released in 2008.
Hanayama says they “have created a puzzle that takes on a spherical shape of an astronomical model compound of a planet and its surrounding ring. The planet positioned tightly inside the ring looks as if it cannot be taken out, and all you can do with it is rotate it on its axis. Or is this really the case? The theme of the puzzle is ‘heaven’.”
Size: The diameter of the puzzle is 45mm.
The puzzle now comes in the new Hanayama Huzzle packaging graded by colour. Black is for their very hardest level 5 & 6 puzzles.
Hanayama puzzles come packaged with a printed solution. Not offered as standard by other sellers.
