Jigsaw and puzzle pieces also meet us in our everyday life. On this page we would like to present a small selection.

Puzzle pieces as an everyday object

Puzzle pieces can be used with their special form as an everyday object. In the following example, the cutting die for butter cookies has the shape of a puzzle piece.

Puzzle pieces in the art

Sometimes the puzzle pieces are not visible immediately, so that they can be noticed only after a close look. In the collage "a ghost sleeping in my bed" by the artist David Caspar (Homepage) the impressions of two puzzle pieces were processed.

Puzzle pieces as jewelery

For example, puzzle pieces can also serve as ornaments or decorations. The following figure shows a key pendant made of metal with two jigsaw pieces and the print "YOU" and "ME". The two puzzle pieces can be loosely connected and have no fixed cohesion.

The recipient can assemble the corresponding motif after receipt, in addition the letter can also be attached with a covering letter.
