It was pulled out of the ground in the Dutch puzzle mines and was immediately oiled down?

I would guess Olz designed, it, David Calzone cast it and you put it together. But that is just a guess.
Looks like it was painted. Your doing or his?

Dave :)

:) good guess. however did you see my above answer? This has not been cast. It's a Shapeways print, designed by Timur.

Here is a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpwqc9f2zvc

@Timur yes I am sure :)

I polished every piece by rubbing it on regular paper and applying some pressure.

Here is a video of how the puzzle looked before the lacquer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gs2qjwv4cg
