This neat little puzzle generated quite a bit of interest. At some point I will attempt another work like this one, but will use fewer colors and make the pieces bigger. This picture is close to actual size. Some of the pieces are very fragile and after being handled by several people there were a total of three broken pieces.

As it happened (from my Journal archives)

Saturday 6:36pm - Worked on a experimental project today (started it late yesterday), cutting 7x7" square of Creative style pieces and then painting the pieces. The result: I don't like it. Way too many bright colors, and although there are some areas of interesting cutting here, they are lost in the noise. The item which was going to be named "Life Complexity" will go untitled, unnumbered and unclassified.

Sunday 9:59 pm - I assembled the untitled work I made yesterday and I've decided that it is interesting enough to be formally assigned a puzzle number. So it is #636, Life Complexity, Creative style, 69 pieces.
