Mr. Zandraa Tumen-Ulzii had for many years been working in isolation from the rest of the puzzle world. He developed many interesting and novel dissections and set up a museum of his productions in Ulan Bator. Not only were the insides very different to anyone else's puzzles, but the outsides were carved and beautifully decorated.

One of the 6-piece puzzles represents the sacred Mongolian Turtle, the other has all 12 animals of the Mongolian Zodiac carved on it ends.


James Dalgety gave an assortment of the 6-burrs as an Exchange Gift at the 1991 IPP in Los Angeles.
