Puzzle is simply cut with 125 interlocking pieces.  But the image is explained on Wikipedi, "The Schildbürger ("citizens of Schilda") are a topic in German chapbook tradition corresponding to the Wise Men of Gotham in English-language tradition.  The "people of Schilda", of a fictitious German town of "Schilda", figure in short tales, known as Schildbürgerstreiche ("pranks of the citizens of Schilda"). Alongside Till Eulenspiegel, the Schildbürger chapbooks are the best-known collection of the prankster type in German literary tradition.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schildbürger  If you study the picture closely, you will notice villagers doing "silly things" (pranks?).  One of the very first puzzles we bought from Roland Chesley, Buckfield, ME, the maker.
