According to Chinese literature, the Tangram was invented during the reign of Chia-ch’ing (1796-1820). It became a puzzle craze in the early 1800’s in Europe, and was highly desirable as some puzzle sets were made of ivory or exotic woods. The Tangram is a two dimensional puzzle made of seven pieces called Tans. These pieces are re-arranged to form thousands of different figures including people, animals, objects and other shapes. The puzzle was a favorite of royalty, authors, and emperors.
This set is typically larger than most, as I wanted to ensure that the individual pieces were easy to handle. All pieces are made from various Brazilian Soapstone, kept natural and finished with a melted bee wax. This is not a massed produced set, each piece is made and fashioned by hand with simple hand tools. Color of stone may vary from pictures shown. Comes in a hand made painted box, nice enough for a formal display. I have also included my own multi-player game rules, which is great fun for all ages to play together. Hand made artisan item, all natural.
