Celebrate the beauty of the Earth in a new and unexpected way. Nervous System, the masterminds behind the mind-bending computer-generated puzzles, have created an unconventional map that they invite you to solve. Called The Earth Puzzle, the 442-piece jigsaw features the world as based on an icosahedral projection with the topology of a sphere. This means that there are no edges, no North and South, and most importantly, no fixed shape. While this might seem daunting, think of it as the freedom to create the world on your terms. There are sure to be some surprises along the way!
- The Earth Puzzle contains 442 pieces.
- 16 of the 442 pieces are shaped liked animals from around the world.
- Puzzle artwork is based on images from NASA's Earth Observatory.
- When complete, the jigsaw puzzle measures approximately 21 by 10 inches. It is made of 1/4" birch plywood.
