Obama Jigsaw Puzzle

Name of Model: Obama Mosaic

Here's another interesting way of building LEGO mosaics - building "jigsaw" puzzle pieces. The challenge here is that the top layer of plates must create the mosaic design, but you need to have the structural integrity built into the "pieces" you build with some additional layers of plates. While this is still a relatively new way of building mosaics, it's gaining traction as an interesting new building challenge. Personally, I think it's important to keep the piece size small in order to make it feel like a real puzzle. Impressively, this puzzle manages to make the parts just three plates (one brick) tall.

Sticking with our attempts to make these posts a bit more topical, I decided to feature this puzzle (which I do believe is the first such mosaic puzzle) today since it is State of the Union Address day.
