This is the sixty-fourth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must interact with the wall. In order to solve this puzzle, you must align the symbols to complete the carving.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You can solve this puzzle in three moves.

    The puzzle will just get harder if you make mistakes, so it's best to simply restart if you get too lost.

Hint Two
    The ancient script here must make it quite hard to work out how you're supposed to rearrange the pieces.

    Pay close attention to the red lines. It's not clear what they're supposed to represent, but it looks as if connecting the lines is the key.

Hint Three
    For your first move, shift the four pieces in the third column from the left up one row.

    That should help you start connecting the red lines. Any idea what they mean?

Super Hint
    Continuing from Hint 3, move the four pieces in the second column from the right down a row.

    Can you work out the last move you need to make to solve the puzzle?

[edit] When Completed


The lines of the ancient inscription seem to create some kind of map. Superimposed on the map is a diagram in the shape of the Big Dipper, the seven brightest stars of Ursa Major.

The Big Dipper is commonly used to find Polaris, the North Star... Does it also point to something else here?

[edit] Step-By-Solution

  • Slide the third column up one square.
  • Slide the fifth column down one square.
  • Slide the fourth row left one square.

[edit] Progress

2130 Picarats and 157 Hint Coins.
