Earth Puzzle
Earth Puzzles currently have a 3 week production period. It is too late to order one for delivery prior to Christmas

The Earth Puzzle is a map of the globe unlike any you’ve seen before. Start anywhere and see where your journey takes you. This puzzle is based on an icosahedral projection and has the topology of a sphere. This means it has no edges, no North and South, and no fixed shape. Try to get the landmasses together or see how the oceans are connected. Make your own maps of the earth!

16 unique puzzle pieces shaped like animals from around the world

ARTWORK
Based on photographs from NASA's Earth Observatory which we transformed into an area-preserving icosahedral map projection

Our plywood puzzles combine the artistry of classic jigsaws with the possibilities of new technology. We use custom software inspired by natural patterns to grow the intertwining shapes of the puzzle pieces. The organic forms are cut from plywood by a laser, resulting in a uniquely challenging puzzle crafted from premium materials.
