"Another devious and difficult puzzle by Oskar van Deventer. Consisting of four interlocking rings, the goal is to configure them to make the loop shown below. This is far more difficult then it looks due to the unique design of the intersections and corners...many pieces flow around in multiple elbow bends, and there are plenty of false leads to follow on your path to the correct solution. This puzzle is perhaps as difficult and time consuming to make as it is to solve! Each piece is made with precision. Gluing the closed loops and subsequently sanding and finishing the puzzle without being able to separate the pieces makes it a very time intensive endeavor." -Eric Fuller
