Northern White Rhino Puzzle
This laser-cut wood jigsaw puzzle features a microscopic photograph of stem cells created from the skin cells of Fatu, a northern white rhinoceros who is one of only 4 remaining members of her species. Scientists at the Loring Laboratory hope one day to rescue species from extinction by creating sperm and egg cells from induced pluripotent stem cells.

about our puzzles
Our plywood jigsaw puzzles are made by lasers and algorithms in Somerville, MA. The intricate branching shapes of the puzzle pieces emerge from an algorithm simulating crystal growth. The organic forms are cut from plywood by a laser, resulting in a uniquely challenging puzzle crafted from premium materials.

Each puzzle includes 2 to 5 science-themed whimsies (puzzle pieces shaped like neurons, brains, DNA, microscopes, etc) that complement the photograph.
