It was designed by the artist Richard Zawitz in 1982. A Tangle is a sculpture, puzzle, and game. It also works great for exercising your hand. It's a fluid form in space, a classic plaything. It can be played by anybody anywhere, from child to adult. It is based on infinite kinetic designs. The inventor studied art and sculpture in Japan and in other cultures. He translated a philosophy into a sculpture. He became a guru of tanglism. His first sculpture was made in wood and was called the infinite sculpture. He produced the shape in an electroplated chrome silver.
