This puzzle is one of my original designs. Designing a shadow puzzle is very easy. You can design also your own puzzles. This puzzle is a rectangle dissection. I discarded some pieces for obtaining a seven piece puzzle. I made a lot of shape. But I liked this tulip shape also I wrote a short story about a magic tulip and a poor old man who find some money inside of this magic tulip. I think puzzles need a story. For this reason I like too much Sam Loyd.
