Legend: This puzzle was used as an intelligence test many years ago. When a young man came to ask for the hand of the girl he loved, he was given this puzzle by the girl’s father. The father would say to the young man, “If you are smart enough to figure out this puzzle, you may marry my daughter.” Naturally the wooden beads represent the two young lovers.

Comes with illustrated instructions to teach you the secret.
