Kevin Sadler writes about it:
This beautifully made 12 (13) piece burr design by Stephan is yet another that belongs in Goetz’ Burr zoo. Stephan has allowed Pelikan to reproduce some of his more fun burrs. Having solved this way way back, I had absolutely no recollection of the solution. I have gotten a bit rusty with burrs over the last couple of years and this caused me quite some difficulty. The difficulty is not too high a level but the fun part here is that to make some of the moves the camel inside needs to be moved around to make space for the other pieces to move. I managed to remove the first two pieces after 3 days of fiddling about with my usual to and fro approach. Removing the next piece was a real challenge – finding the required moves requires looking and experimenting and is very enjoyable. Even after almost all the pieces have been removed it remains stable and does not collapse on itself at all. Fabulous!”
