Talk with the antique dealer
Go to the door of the store and examine the note. Then, ring the bell 3 times and talk to the antiques dealer. During the conversation, ask him about all the details related to the painting.
Put Oskar's heart in the Voralberg sphere
Turn the sphere clockwise and examine the golden elements. Pull the lever down and press the button. A few parts of the armor should move and expose the inside of the sphere. Rotate the sphere and find the second set of gold elements. Pull the lever and press the button. Another piece of armor will reveal a part of the sphere's interior.
Under Hans's sign you will find the access code to the inside of the sphere - 293670. Rotate the sphere so that the gold pieces with even numbers appear on the screen, and move the arrow to the number 2. Then, rotate the sphere 180 degrees and move the arrow to the number 9. One by one, place the numbers in the right positions until you see the keyhole.
Examine the sphere under Hans's sign. Move all the loose pieces to reveal a hole in the sphere, which will reveal a button. Press the button, and then take out the miniature element (miniature element) that pops out the other side. When you push the button on the metal object, 4 small pieces will come out of the other end.
Examine the part of the sphere with the keyhole and insert the miniature piece into it. Hold down the left mouse button on the miniature and twist it until you hear a click.
Insert Oskar's heart into the sphere, open the lid and insert the miniature piece into the keyhole. While holding down the right mouse button, turn the miniature several times until the heart is activated.
Talk to the man kneeling by the wooden trunk - he will tell you that Oskar hid inside. To open the trunk, you must find the right key. Find the heart-shaped key by the stack of books on the right and open the trunk.
Run after Oskar when he escapes from the trunk. Examine the furniture stand that Oskar hid under and click on the space under the closet, then click on Oskar.
After a brief conversation with Oskar, pick up the broom and try to coax him out from under the closet. Hold down the LMB and move the broom to the left.
When Oskar comes out from under the closet, run after him go upstairs. Stand by the railing and move the camera to the left, and click on Oskar who's next to the crate and book stand. Move the camera to the right and click on the metal bowls where Oskar hid.
