Five Elements




An archaeological artifact is depicting figures of some natural and artificial objects like the sun, moon, comet, star, flower, horse, bird , insect, headdress, mountains, river, house, weapons, bonfire and necklace. The translation of the symbol messages below is "WIND, RAIN, FLAME, SOIL, ESSENCE". According to experts, there are 5 polyominoes tiles that were used as patterns for making the outline of the figures in this artwork. They discovered that these 5 tiles altogether should fill and fit in any of the 16 figures depicted above. What are these polyominoes?

The five polyominoes suggested by me fit into all of the larger 16 patterns in the main frame. Will upload configurations in due time. Fitting the same five to those at the bottom (and elsewhere) ought to take some time! Are all of them needed?


What do you mean elsewhere?

These 5 work for many tested shapes, but not all have been evaluated yet!Provisional.jpg.04a59bd0591867c70953584f970029a8.jpg
