The howling statue puzzle in Call of the Sea chapter six is the final one to solve. It is part of the largerĀ constellation door puzzle, but it is a separate conundrum to complete to progress to the game’s finale.

After you open the final constellation door, you enter a room with white and black statues on podiums. They are surrounded by a pool of water that you cannot enter. Walk up to the control panel, which has three diamond-shaped buttons and a circular one.

You need to press each diamond button a specific number of times. Each button press rotates a different black howling statue through a 90-degree turn. The left diamond button controls the statue to your left, the middle button for the middle statue, and the right button for the right one. The amount of button presses are:

  • Left button three times
  • Middle button once
  • Right button once

Press the circular button. Black plinths will rise from the water. Follow the path across to another control panel. This rotates the white howling statues in the same way. The button pushes for this control panel are:

  • Left button once
  • Middle button once
  • Right button three times

Push the circle button. This will raise white plinths out of the water. Retrace your steps to the first control panel. Input these button presses before hitting the circular button for the final time:

  • Middle button once
  • Left button three times

Walk across the plinths until you reach the hand tattoo machine on the far side. Interact with it to grab the final constellation symbol you need. Return to the temple’s main room to complete the constellation door puzzle, and reach the end of the game.
