vase to the right.

the wall on the right and jump back to the frame. Balance walk to the
surface on top of the frame.

down and look in the corner.

the middle. Climb up, perch on top and jump to the ledge with the vase.
11. In the next large room with a wet
floor (this room will eventually have the spinning-blade columns and
higher water level), perch atop another pole and jump to the wooden
beam. Instead of wall jumping to the bar above, jump to the open door.
Go left to a dead end and a vase is in plain sight when a spider

12. After you wall run to the door below
a ledge (a ledge you'll later explore) you'll ascend some stairs. At
the top of the stairs, turn around and check the corner for the vase.
13 & 14. Next you'll shimmy some
ledges and see a pillar below. Jump and slide down the pillar to get
these in the dead end area.

pillar in the middle with spiked rollers around it, you can find the two
vases at the bottom. One is next to the pillar.

21 & 22. Shimmy around and jump to
the pillar and slide down to the bottom. These two are at opposite ends
in vases. (If you shimmied and jumped to the next ledge, you can't get
back to the pole, so reload the save.)

23. Perch on the second pole, and
instead of jumping toward the middle of the room, jump to the other
wooden post. Navigate up to the ledge above that post.
