The Resident Evil Village blood pool puzzle is one of those challenges you might solve straight away, or more slowly depending on how your brain takes it all in. The good news is that you won't be in any danger here despite the creepy setting. This puzzle is all about position some statues in a Castle Dimitrescu bathroom to find a way ahead. Everything you need is in the same room so you just need to look for the clues around you for some poetic hints before you start repositioning the sculptures.
This is an important Resident Evil Village puzzle as you'll need to complete it before you can move on from the bathroom and into a new area of Castle Dimitrescu. So once you've admired Lady Dimitrescu's bathroom decor, read our guide to the Resident Evil Village blood pool statue puzzle solution so you can get it done and carry on your way.
Resident Evil Village statue puzzle solution
The solution to this puzzle is on the wall at the back on 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."
If you look at the back of the statues you'll get a prompt you can use to turn them either left of right. The poem is basically a coded message as to how you should face each one to continue. Assuming you haven't turned all the statues all over the place, you only need to turn three of the four statues to complete this challenge.
"Women are blind to male advances..."
There are two female statues on the left hand side of the room if you're facing away from the plaque. When you first enter they will be facing the men on the other side of the room. Simply 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 (facing away from the plaque) offering up a plate of food. Simply turn them to face the 'lord' rearing up on the horse.
"...so soon the wine may flow."
And that's the puzzle done. You don't have to touch the guy on the horse at all. As soon as the two ladies are facing each other, and the three men are facing the statue on horseback, the pool will drain and you'll be able to carry on down the stairs that are revealed.
