The Japanese company Hanayama have been making a range of cast metal puzzles for over a quarter of a century now. The design of their puzzles is amazing, as is the craftmanship with which they are made. Hanayama make a wide range of cast puzzles. We have just selected a few of our favourites to offer here in the Grand Illusions Toy Shop.VORTEX is 48mm across, and is Level 6 Difficulty (i.e. difficult!) It comes in a smart presentation box.These do not come with a solution. However if you visit the distributor website at http://www.eureka-puzzle.eu/eureka/index.php?/all-cast-puzzle-solutions.html and enter the complete barcode found on the box your puzzle came in, you will be able to access the solution.

The three pieces each have a spiral (vortex) body and two protrusions. When assembled together, each piece is unified into a flat object. In order to undo this complex entanglement it will be necessary to unbind them three dimensionally. The motivation behind this idea is the statue of Asura. Asura is an ancient Indian god and also a protector of Buddhism. The figure with the three faces and six arms conjured up the concept of trinity.
