Can't take screenshots, but it's the room with a giant slab that shows ten shapes, each made of six cubes. There are six cubes in the room. Can anybody give me a way to solve this room?

Those are ways of unfolding a cube. Not all the ways are listed. Create one that is unlisted.

Sounds perfect enough, but I created an unlisted solution and nothing happened... are there other conditions for this puzzle?

Nevermind, one of the blocks fell and it unlocked. Weird...

Hmm. I don't think there are other condition. What did you make? It might not be a valid unfolding.

with the X's being blocks
Like I said, one fell and it clicked open. Now only the black monolith remains

I don't get it, how do you do this? :P
I'm getting bald over here.

In front of the statue, line up the blocks so they line up like so:

OOOOO
OXXXO
ZZZXO

The X's are the blocks, and the Z's are the ledge in front of the slab.
Turn counterclockwise, take the two blocks from behind the slab. Bring them to the front one at a time, and try to make your final shape look like this:

OOOOOOO
OXXXOOO
ZZZXXXO

When I did this, the one block sitting above the other fell before I put the last cube in. But it still solved the puzzle.

I originally had it with four blocks on the top row and two underneath but the game was only amused by my efforts.
