History of Tangram

Credits to mathverick

The legend of the Tangram is that a sage had to bring a sheet of glass to the king, as the king wanted a window in his palace. The sage wrapped the glass piece carefully in canvas and silk to carry to the king’s palace. The journey there was long and rough, with high summits and rock paths. But just as the sage was reaching the palace, he fell down the side of the mountain, causing the square glass to break.

When he got to the king and unwrapped the silk, he was surprised to see that the glass was not shattered to pieces but into 7 geometric shapes. The sage used the 7 pieces to describe to the king his long journey to the palace.

He made the shapes of his home, a camel, monks, boats and mountains. The king was so pleased with the different shapes that he recreated it into wood, hence the creation of Tangram.
