This is the sixty-second puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must interact with the signpost. In order to solve this puzzle, you must restore the sign.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    First, try to think about what the sign might be depicting.

    You usually see signs like these at forks in roads, so it's likely to indicate 'left' or 'right' somehow.

    However, it's doesn't look as if it could be an arrow...

Hint Two
    Have you worked out what shape is depicted on the sign? Either way, here's a clue about how to move the tiles.

    One tile is almost completely white. Put this in the bottom left-hand corner.

    There's also a tile mostly taken up by a square. Put this in the bottom-right corner and rotate it so that the white area is on the bottom right.

Hint Three
    This next hint should be very handy: the picture on the sign is actually a hand pointing in the direction you should walk.

    Point with your hand and see if you can arrange the remaining tiles to match that.

    By now, it shouldn't be too hard to work out which direction the hand is pointing.

Super Hint
    Normally you would point with your index finger. When you do that, what positions would your other fingers be in?

    Chances are, your thumb will be sticking straight up. Could that be the tile with the L shape? The remaining three fingers will be closed tightly. That must be the tile with the four rectangles.

    The right direction should be clear now!

Too bad.

It's supposed to be a signpost, but for now it's just a post.

[edit] When Completed

Give yourself a big hand!

So left is the right way to go. Right?

Restore the sign as shown.
