A jigsaw puzzle is a tiling puzzle that involves the tedious assembly of a number of small, fragmentary pieces, which are designed to interlock when placed correctly.  Each piece usually has a small part of a larger image. Jigsaw puzzles were originally created by painting a picture on a flat, rectangular piece of wood, and then cutting that picture into small pieces, and became very popular in the United States during the Great Depression.
