# 3D nonogram – The one-thousander

This is a three-dimensional nonogram. The first ten squares depict the layers of a $$10\times10\times10$$ cube. The final square gives the enumerations for the Z-axis, top to bottom. Some rules:

• If a row or column has no numbers, that means that the composition of that row/column is unknown. Note that this is different than the usual practice in nonograms where a missing number means that the row/column has no shaded cells at all. In our case, such rows can be explicitly marked with a zero.
• The Z-axis enumerations are all single digits, so e.g. 11 means two stretches of one, not one stretch of eleven.
• The thin black lines in the middle are just visual aids. They're not meaningful to the puzzle itself.

There might still be some mistakes, but I think this is the solution:

The image is not what I previously thought, which was

A firework show for the 4th of July

It is actually

A tree with presents, for Christmas day

• Nice job! A couple of "pixels" are off (e.g. row 5, column 7 currently has 10 shaded cells instead of 6&2), but overall that looks like the correct image. What I was trying to draw was a rot13(Puevfgznf gerr jvgu cerfragf haqrearngu), but I won't blame anyone for not seeing that from the final picture :D The animated image is certainly convincing, even though it wasn't what was intended.

• That makes a lot more sense. It seems obvious now but I think I would have had a hard time guessing it. I have tried to fix up the errors, it is hard work to check 100 vertical columns :)
