This Sculpture is a Real Page Turner!
Called the Codex Silenda, this is woodworking sculpture that also tells a story and is a brain-teasing puzzle.
That means we get to enjoy it on (at least) 3 different levels.
There are 5 carved puzzles–and you can’t get move on without solving the puzzle you are on!
This is a creation of designer Brady Whitney and we predict it will be a big hit for the beauty as well as for the puzzles.
“As the puzzler moves through the book, a story begins to unfold, depicting the story of an apprentice in Da Vinci’s Workshop who encounters the same Codex,” Whitney explains. “However, in the story the Codex acts as a trap set by Da Vinci to capture any would be spies/snoopy apprentices in order to protect his work. The only way to escape is to solve each of the puzzles before the master returns from his trip.”
Whitney hopes to be able to “mass produce” the puzzle book which is made of laser cut wood. His Kickstarter campaign to fund the project has so far been a runaway success.
