The novelty of this magnetic Tangram is that it works with a third dimension and includes a new element: the need to strike a balance between the 7 pieces. The attraction between the tans (tangram pieces) is what ultimately sustains the figures and makes their handling so rewarding. As a result the upright figures can be seen and enjoyed from any perspective.
Piece of «Pico Pao» workshop with a long artisan history whose history begins in 1979 in Lubián, a small town in Spain hidden in the mountains bordering Portugal. In the neighboring region of Tras os Montes (behind the mountains), the woodpecker is called Pico Pao (wooden peak). The song of this beautiful green bird sounds like the neighing of a horse and the blows of its beak on the trees are heard in the valley mixed with the hammers of the carpenters striking the wood of the roofs. From a workshop in Zamora, the Bermejo brothers have taken their ancestral pastimes to the MOMA in New York and the British Museum in London. In the era of video games and virtual overdose, Pico Pao’s handcrafted pieces amuse half the world.
