The solution to this puzzle is on the back wall of the room. It has a plaque that reads:

“Women are blind to male advances, but the poor shall take their chances to give their lord their bounty sown, so soon the wine may flow.”

At the back of the room, there are statues, players can turn them left or right. The poem is essentially a coded message asking players to face each one to continue. Players need to turn three of the four statues to complete this puzzle.

“Women are blind to male advances”

There are two female statues on the left side of the room facing away from the plaque. When players enter the room the statues are facing the men on the other side of the room. Players can just turn them to face each other.

“...but the poor shall take their chances to give their lord their bounty sown”

There are three men on the right-hand side of the room, once again, facing away from the plaque. Players can turn them to face the “lord” on top of the horse statue.

“...so soon the wine may flow”

That’s it. Once the steps above are done, players can move on in the game. Once the two female statues are facing each other and the three men are facing the statue on horseback, the pool will drain and stairs will appear.
