Pictures are stored in computers as numbers. Each number gives the colour of a small area or pixel. There are lots of ways numbers can be represented. The Ancient Egyptians had a simple way using hieroglyphs (symbols). In this puzzle, the picture uses decimal numbers but the key uses hieroglyphs.
Can you work out what the symbols in the key mean (see here if not), and solve the puzzle? Once you have, create your own Hieroglyph pixel puzzle.
