Genshin Impact Wondrous Shadows 1st Lantern Riddle solution

The first puzzle is actually a Censer, so you’ll have to rotate the shadow a bit until it looks like the screenshot below.

You can check how I did it in the gameplay video below and just reproduce the same moments I did. Be sure to keep an eye on the Riddle Progress gauge at the bottom left though. So you can tell how close you are to the final result. It’s a pretty precise puzzle so unless you’re at the correct angle and facing the correct side of the shadow, you won’t complete the riddle.
