This is the one hundred and thirtieth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must examine the painting on the back wall. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which part of the painting is odd.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Many things about the painting are a little off, but what one little detail seems the most unusual to you?

Hint Two
    Thoroughly inspect the couple in the center of the picture. The answer is there somewhere.

Hint Three
    The couple seems to be dancing in midair, so naturally you must be curious about what they're standing on.

    Look down at their feet. There's something strange going on where those feet meet the ground...

    Do you see it?

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

It certainly is hard to see what could be peculiar about such a happy scene.

[edit] When Completed

Nice eye!

The couple seem to be the only two people with a visible reflection on the floor. It seems that the scene in this painting isn't of the ball itself but rather of its reflection on the ballroom floor!

Perhaps the young couple out on the floor looked so happy together that the painter didn't want to ruin their dance by staring straight at them.

[edit] Solution


Circle the couple's reflection at their feet.

[edit] Progress

3895 Picarats and 209 Hint Coins.
