When in the dungeons, don't go through the crack in the wall. You will not be able to return if you do.
Instead, backtrack through the area until you get to the vault.

You will end up in a large room with a circle of fire in the centre and three tile puzzles. Ignore these tile puzzles for now. There are puzzles in the rooms to the north, east and west that need to be completed first.

The puzzles in the north and west rooms are fairly simple. You pick up colours from the apparatuses and use them to get through the doors. You can also mix two colours together in the mixer.

In the western room, once you get through the blue door, you'll have to fight a golem. After this, a painting appears. Look closely at the painting and you'll see that some of the men in it are wearing masks while others aren't. Make a note of the position of the masked men as you'll need this later for the puzzle in the centre room. Once you've revealed the painting, you can mix the red and blue in the mixer to get a purple. There's treasure through the purple door.

The northern room is very similar to the western one. Fight a golem through the blue door to reveal a painting (again, pay attention to the position of the masked men) and then mix the blue and yellow to get a green. Through the green door, there's more treasure.

The eastern room has a tile puzzle where you have to reveal a portrait. Flip the tiles in the following order. The Xs represent the tiles that you don't flip.

1 2 X X X

3 4 X 5 6

X X 7 8 9

X 10 11 12 X

X 13 14 X 15

Once you've completed this puzzle, another painting will be revealed. Once you've studied the positions of the masked men, you can return to the room with the fire and complete the tile puzzles there.

In the tile puzzle on the west, flip over the tiles that correspond to the masked men in the painting in the western room. Do the same thing with the other two tile puzzles (using the positions of the masked men in the northern room for the northern tile puzzle and the eastern room for the puzzle on the east) The fire will be extinguished and the achievement will unlock.
