Well, it is not a mathematical puzzle, but it seems that Singapore is keeping the momentum!

I wonder if it has one solution. With such a large predominantly blue puzzle it could be difficult to make each piece unmistakably different.

There are enough tiny differences in the shapes of the pieces for it to have 1 solution.

That is really beautiful. I would love to put that together. I think it would actually be fairly simple because of everything going on in the picture.

I once put a 10,000 piece puzzle together in just under ten days that was of a mountain and its reflection in a lake below. So, you think that a lot of blue on a puzzle would be hard to put together? Try putting doing a puzzle that has a huge white mountain and its mirror image right below! That was insane!

I want an enormous puzzle like that on my wall.

PS: I just found it (scroll to the very bottom). That's a lot of money for a jigsaw puzzle. Of course, it is enormous.

also being a jigsaw puzzle addict I've often looked at this puzzle and added it to my wish list.

That's cheaper than the place I posted above! If someone ends up getting this then get it where Gene found it. That seems like it would be the cheapest that thing would go for.

I loved jigsaw puzzles as a child. I put together at least six 500+ piece puzzles before I was 16. My biggest puzzle was a 2,000 piece one. They all got discarded during a move, though.

I would like to put that puzzle together (the picture is wonderful!), but I wouldn't be able to find a wall big enough to display it.
