This is the one hundred and forty fourth puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Loosha. In order to solve this puzzle, you must use the poem to figure out how to unlock the entrance.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    This puzzle is chock-full of riddles. Try taking them apart one by one.

    Which of the emblems along the rim of the crest refer to the “four fruits”? Try touching a few of them to see what happens.

    If you do it right, the sleeping birds will awaken with a glow.

Hint Two
    Did you wake the birds? If so, try petting them. You might notice a change. The poem says they will “dance,” so you can expect them to move in some way.

Hint Three
    The final part of this puzzle involves the “bird of illusion” and the “sun.”

    Of course, you can’t always see an illusion with the naked eye. Manipulate the dancing birds to form the image of a bird with the sun above it.

Super Hint
    Use the stylus to move each bird into such a position that its inside border helps to form the silhouette of a bird kissing the sun above.

    You’re very close now. Step into the light!
