The last piece is in the Small Cave Shrine where you’ll have to solve the Lake Stone Dias to get. You can refer to the previous puzzle solution for help.
Once you have all three, go to the stone pedestal and insert the pieces. This is where things get complicated to explain because there isn’t just one solution. It will be different for each save. This means that reloading your saved file will completely reset the solution. What you need to do is keep spinning the hexagons until it forms the picture above.
You can only move three of the seven hexagons at one time. So you’ll need a keen eye to arrange them in the right order. This puzzle isn’t mandatory as it opens the door that gets you the Depraved Idol which is worth 15,000 Pesetas at the Merchant.
