The Mantrap Puzzle

Mixed media work by James Dalgety. Exhibited at The World's Second Exhibition of Eccentrica at Presents in Sloane Street, London in 1972.

Named "Mantrap" as, on seeing the box, man wants to open it and is thus trapped into solving the sequence of five tanglement puzzles.

Purchased in 1972 by the late Edward Hornby who kindly donated it to the museum in 1988
