Are you a conservationist or environmentalist ? If so, you can help us to continue to save the wildlife and free a gorilla locked in a wooden cage.
Alfons EYCKMANS enclosed 1 Gorilla in a BURR of usual appearance. What is an achievement to enclose a gorilla in a 4cm Burr. :-)
As with FREE-THE-MONKEYS 2, you'll have to free him, and it won't be easy. It will take you many hours to get this big monkey out of this puzzle.
Maurice VIGOUROUX has made a real masterpiece of dexterity.
The burr itself is a classic 18 piece burr with the gorilla added. The puzzle has 19 pieces. This puzzle has a fairly high level of difficulty. It is not to be given to an inexperienced amateur.
It was made in BLACK EBONY, ROSE WOOD and VIOLET WOOD by Maurice VIGOUROUX. The gorilla is in aluminium. Its size is 4cm.
Do not be fooled by its small size, it is formidable and works perfectly!
The FREE-THE-MONKEY 2 puzzle has been re-edited in small size and precious wood to accompany its twin: SAVE-THE-GORILLA which is with the same wood and the same size.
As usual, only a small quantity of games have been produced, this in a handcrafted way with precious woods. There is no gluing. The dead angles are cut in one piece.
The woods are simply polished and lightly waxed.
Number of elements 19
Movements (Level) 126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.2.1.2
The game is delivered without solution. On request, a BURRTOOL file will be sent to you by e-mail.
Many thanks to Alfons EYCKMANS for his kind permission.
ARTELUDES Review : A little jewel more than a puzzle! An example of technical virtuosity.
