Two pieces of this puzzle lock together when connected. The pin key provided can be pushed through a hole in one of the pieces to unlock the mechanism and allow disassembly.

"Seen here is Symmetry I, the third in a series of sophisticated geometric metal sculptures I am in the process of releasing. It offers a simple elegance with clean geometric lines, symmetry and brushed or patina'd finish. Since releasing my most complex puzzle this Spring, I've wanted to create a cube puzzle that is easy to solve and more affordable to produce. Now I have that easier, affordable metal sculpture puzzle in Symmetry I.

I designed this sculpture with twenty interlocking elements made from Brass and Aluminum. Each piece by itself is an interesting geometric form with a wonderfully smooth feel. I give each piece my signature rounded edges and all parts are tested for a smooth sliding, interlocking fit. The finished work has a luxurious "fit and feel". Included in the design is a locking mechanism that keeps this weighty piece intact when picked up and/or turned over - meaning it will not come apart unexpectedly. With the simple key (included), you can easily unlock this puzzle to take it apart." -GarE Maxton
