In what order do I have to extinguish the puzzle signs in the Gargoyle Contract quest?

There are three rooms, guarded by Gargoyles, each one with a chest and four magical signs/runes you have to extinguish in the correct order. There is also a different clue in each room.

The clue in the room I’m stuck is the following

  • So I was out drinking last night…how do I remove a tattoo?
  • How to assign more than one Sign and switch them quickly?
  • How do I not get incinerated or cut down on the very first battle?
  • How firm are The Witcher 2's minimum required specs?
  • Do Adrenaline Skills have separate adrenaline bars?
  • The Witcher 2 freezes at the end of chapter 2's cutscene
  • Divertimento!
    Coulds are like bees
    When bells ring

    In what order do I have to extinguish the signs? I’ve identified the signs in the room using the books from a merchant as animal, time, art and sky.

    What are the solutions to the other possible variations of this puzzle?

  • How can I re-spec my abilities in The Witcher 2?
  • How do I use mutagens?
  • Where did Malena run off to?
  • The Witcher 2 freezes at the end of chapter 2's cutscene
  • Is there a function that highlights items you can interact with upon keypress?
  • How do I not get incinerated or cut down on the very first battle?

    There seem to be multiple different puzzles, and which one is finally used in a room seems to be random.

    There are three rooms in total where you must extinguish the signs in the correct order. They are all underground, look for stairs leading down in the three locations marked on this map:enter image description here

    The descriptions of the signs are in the Books of Magical Signs Volumes 1-4, they are as following:

    art = harp
    war = clenched fist
    thunder = striking lightning bolt
    death = scythe
    sky = line within parallelogram, pursed mouth
    butterfly = line crossed twice
    weather = arrow sliced in half
    reason = bear dancing on dew
    time = open hourglass or chalice
    life = blossoming flower
    animal = snake creeping along riverbead
    fate = cross within circle
    

    I’ve only had 4 different runes in my game, I identified them as the following

    The clues in each room are numbered, there appear to be at least 6 different ones.

    About the amphitheater:
    Let’s assume we don’t have a solution. How do we solve the puzzle?

    Clouds are like bees: this one is pretty obvious: sky and animal.

    When bells ring: more or less obvious, since when = time, but could also be a reference to “For whom the bell tolls”, ergo, death. Still a bit of a long shot.

    Divertimento! is haunting me, though.
    It means “fun” in italian, and it also is a musical genre, generally composed for a small ensemble, this also is a light-hearted, good-mood music, also far away from the notion of death.

    So I moved on and did a bit of letter swapping and realized “Divertimento” contains the letters of the word Morte in italian, meaning death. That is the best I could get so far.

    Also, Mozart wrote his divertimento (K. 522, “The Musical Joke”) 8 days after the death of his muse bird, Baptista. This one is really funny.


    Since Fabian stated that Divertimento does not mean death, I need to correct my efforts in that direction and stay with art (music).

    I used numbers, and trial and error.

    |----3-------------------------------4----|

    If you can understand this diagram, the sequence is 3, 2, 1, 4.

    Enter the room, first on your left, second straight ahead, third opposite side of second, and fourth is on the entrance side of the third.
