Ancient Artistry is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.


Deep inside this cave is what appears to be a cave painting from many thousands of years ago. The cave is dark, so it's difficult to make out the entire painting.

Your lamp can only illuminate one part at a time, but can you count how many bulls are depicted here?

Start from the edge of the painting, move the lamp along, and count the bulls as you go. Some of them are fairly small, so look closely!

Did you count all the bulls you could see but still got the answer wrong?

Those were definitely bulls, so you didn't count something that wasn't a bull. But maybe you missed one? Do another pass over the painting with your lamp.

You've probably found nine bulls in the painting. That's not all of them. However, you're not going to find any more by concentrating on just one spot. Perhaps you're missing the forest for the trees?

Thee are nine smaller bulls and one giant bull. You should see it if you cast your eyes over the entire painting.



Too bad.

Use your lamp to light up every corner of the painting.



There are nine small bulls and one large one.
