Baldur’s Gate 3 has its fair share of puzzles, but the Eyes Wall Painting Puzzle in the Selunite Outpost is especially tricky. After cracking the Moon Puzzle in the Goblin Camp, a new path emerges before you. What awaits past a neverending descent down the stairs is the Underdark, a place where lockpickers are pretty handy.

Still, Sleight of Hand isn’t everything when this Eyes Wall Painting with beams of light surrounding it stares back at you. Press Left Alt all you like; no levers or buttons will get you out of this mind-boggling situation.

The key to solving this puzzle lies in analyzing the painting and how it relates to the immediate surroundings. Here’s some enlightenment: much like you in this room, the eyes are surrounded by light beams. The one thing this room lacks to reflect the puzzle’s wall painting is some lightning. How about we turn on the lights around here?

To solve the Eyes Wall Painting puzzle in Baldur’s Gate 3, follow these steps in no particular order:

  1. Light up every torch to the right and left side. There are three on each side, six in total.
  2. Light up the two Braziers at the center of the room.
  3. Light up the candle atop the cupboard, next to the Gilded Chest.

Now that the lights are on, the environment is much more pleasant to look at. Oh, and the stone slab to the room’s northeast will shine with a blue glow, just like the color of the Eyes in the puzzle’s Wall Painting. Interact with the door to access the now unlocked area. Time to loot some goodies.

Inside, an Opulent Chest with some magic loot can be found. Here’s hoping Gale won’t ask you to hand it over anytime soon.
