True Genius Grecian Bottle
Genius is patience - Isaac Newton

Genius is patience - Isaac NewtonAncient Greece. The cradle of Western civilization. The birthplace of democracy, Western philosophy and literature, fundamental scientific and mathematical principles, the world's oldest known analog computer, the Olympic Games, and feta cheese. For millennia, Greece has served as the inspiration for brilliant minds such as Archimedes, Aristotle, Euclid, Hipparchus, Ptolemy, Plato, Pythagoras, and Socrates.
The ancient Greeks used bottles called ampulla olearia to hold precious liquids such as perfumed oils. The True Genius Grecian Bottle holds something a little more exquisite - a test of ingenuity and dexterity. Can you remove the wooden ball and the associated pieces (wooden dowel, metal pin, nut, and bolt), and successfully reassemble everything inside the bottle?
