|This puzzle is of a very interesting and scanty kind of construction - puzzle, based on the connection of space mosaics with the forms of polyhedrons. The only existing puzzle of the sort is Rubik's snake and it is world-popular.|
|The BIG SERPENT puzzle has a wider range of features. Playing with it is much more engaging and difficult. The reason is that, unlike Rubik's snake (based on a simple cubic grating), the puzzle doesn't use usual orthogonal axes.|
|Here is a few out of millenium of the shapes
The Big Serpent can turn into:|
|Among the figures made during the game there are many figures of a high grade of symmetry, such as cubic octahedron, pyramids etc., and the number of less symmetric figures is really boundless. The total number of possible shapes is around e+36. This drives us to the conclusion that the possibilities of our puzzle are immense, which allows to reach concrete aims, leaving at the same time a vast field for a free creative space designing.|
|The puzzle is complicated, requires
attention and assiduity.|
Summing up, we'd like to notice that with all pointed advantages THE BIG SERPENT consists of but two simple parts and is easily made.
