The object of the Lotus is to find the Lotus Flower.
To do this you need to remove an aluminum circular disc with a rod running through the centre. But if you think you've done the puzzle by then you're very much mistaken.
The Lotus is based on the Yen Puzzle which was invented by Wil back in 1979. That puzzle had a wooden frame with a nail in it that held a Japanese Yen Coin. This new puzzle is beautifully machined from anodised blue aluminum and has additional secrets not found in the original design. Those secrets are where the puzzle gets it's name Lotus Flower and until you understand the reason for the name it can be said you have not solved the puzzle.
There are many, many steps in this puzzle. Many small parts. No banging, no tapping, no external tools, no force in any way; just enjoy the puzzle and find the secrets of the Lotus Flower.
Size: 110mm x 55mnm x 20mm
The puzzle is very solid, and quite heavy. It's made of anodised blue aluminum. It has the name Lotus and Wil's signature engraved on the side.
Wil is a true puzzle solver and has the philosophical view that puzzles should not come with solution sheets. So, if you purchase one of these puzzles there will be no solution supplied. Brian did eventually solve the puzzle after a few hours. Pretty tough!!
