There are many things that people will immediately associate with Japan and its culture, a long list that includes sushi, manga and anime, giant robots, samurai and ninjas. However, there are also things in nature that are reminiscent of the Japanese spirit, such as the gentle slopes of Mount Fuji or the gentle curves of flowers such as cherry and plum trees. The latter, especially the sakura or cherry blossoms, have become almost representative of Japan, and now you can have such a beautiful flower on your desktop without worrying that it will wither.

ZIREL is a new type of puzzle from Japan that will really test your patience but reward your tenacity. Unlike a typical jigsaw puzzle where each piece is visually unique and has clear markings on what it’s connected to, many pieces in this puzzle look nearly so identical that you might assume you can simply swap them. You may be surprised or even frustrated to learn that each part actually has little differences and has its own specific place, and discovering its position could almost feel like reaching enlightenment.

Some people say that good things come to those who wait, and that’s definitely the case with this puzzle. Assuming, of course, that you’re actually solving it instead of hoping it magically resolves itself after staring at it for hours. Once all the metal pieces slide into place, you are left with a beautiful Sakura (cherry blossom) or Ume (plum blossom) cast in stainless steel with a mirror finish. Thanks to the extremely small gaps of 0.004mm, you won’t even see lines marring the beauty of these floral art pieces. Feel free to place them on your desk as a beautiful paperweight or have them stand proudly on top of a table or shelf. After hours of hard work, you definitely deserve the gloating.

Beyond the allure of the finished puzzle, each piece is designed with Japanese ingenuity and craftsmanship. Despite their hard metal surfaces, the pieces glide effortlessly past each other when you’ve discovered their correct place. Keen attention to detail and disciplined quality control ensure that each piece is of the highest quality, resulting in a whole that is as good as the sum of its parts. Challenging, satisfying and rewarding, this metal puzzle can help keep your mind sharp while providing a feast for the eyes on your desk or shelf.
