Nervous System Nautilus Puzzle

Availability: In stock (1)

The whorled shell of a Nautilus creates a challenging spiral puzzle from lasercut wood. The Spiral Puzzle is a new twist on the classic jigsaw puzzle where the edge coils into the center. Usually you start assembling a puzzle from the edge and work inwards. However, with a Spiral Puzzle the edge winds inside the puzzle, mixing the interior and the exterior.

The puzzle features a photograph of a nautilus shell. Nautiluses are cephalopods related to octopi and squid. As it grows, the nautilus builds larger and larger chambers to live in, creating a spiraling shell. The chambers contain a mixture of gas and seawater. The nautilus regulates this mixture to control its buoyancy much like a submarine!

The puzzle contains 5 cephalopod pieces and a seahorse for good measure.

  • Contains 306 maze-style pieces
  • Laser cut in Palenville, NY
  • Made with Nervous System's custom birch plywood
