This is the one hundred and thirty-fourth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must interact with the manhole cover behind the monument. In order to solve this puzzle, you must arrange the slabs so that each column, row and diagonal contain different facing arrows.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Start by placing panels next to the ones already fixed in place.

    The bottom-right corner of the board is a good place to start, as there's only one orientation of panel that can fit there. Check the row and column for this space, and choose a panel that will fill the space without duplicating the existing arrows.

Hint Two
    The space on the bottom right of the board needs a piece with a left and right arrow on it. The left arrow should be on top, as there's already a right arrow in the third row down.

    Next, let's look at the space at the top of the second column from the right. After the bottom-right panel is in position, it should be easy to work out which one goes here.

Hint Three
    With the first two hints, you should have already filled in the right half of the board.

    Now let's see which panel fits the center of the leftmost column. You'll be completing two rows with this piece, so there's only one panel that could go here.

Super Hint
    You should have gathered from Hint 3 that the panel with a right and down arrow goes in the center of the leftmost column on the board.

    That leaves only two spaces left to fill. Don't forget that you need to pay attention to the diagonals, or else you won't know which panel goes where.
