Vega consists of six identical symmetrical pieces made up of nicely contrasting Maple and Bubinga hardwoods. Assembly requires a typical Stewart Coffin arrangement of two halves that slide together. Once assembled, this puzzle forms an interesting shape that is intermediate between the second and third stellation of the rhombic dodecahedron. With its twelve points and regal stature of approx 6" diameter, this puzzle definitely commands attention and is sure to be a statement piece in any collection. The edges and points on this puzzle are left intentionally sharp so handle with care! This puzzle is shipped disassembled in order to protect the sharp tips as much as possible during shipping.
