There are two pillars located at the centre of the room and surrounded by the same images that can be seen on the door that is yet to be opened. The last thing to note are the two latches that can be seen on either side of the pillars which the players must move around to shine light onto the markings on the floor.

To solve this puzzle, you are required to move the pillars individually around the circle that surrounds the centre statue using the Accio spell.

When the pillars move, they cast light on the symbols on the floor causing them to glow as well. You must ensure that the symbols glowing on the floor are the same symbols glowing on the door in order for it to open.
