Ravensburg, Germany, September 28, 2008--In this truly puzzling picture, participants who helped assemble what may be the world's largest jigsaw puzzle pose for a photo atop their effort.

The event, sponsored by puzzle maker Ravensburger AG, brought together an estimated 15,000 people to assemble the 1,141,800-piece mosaic of animals, maps, and landscapes.

"We really like puzzling," town resident Sonja Haussner told the Associated Press. The result has been submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records.
