Diorama is a TADS 2 interactive fiction game and is © 1999 by Peter Berman. It was a participant in the Speed-IF 2000 event.
You play as a fourth grade boy who made a cool diorama of a Maasai village for school, but the toy cow is missing! Is it hidden in the diorama somewhere? Or did one of your classmates take it?
This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Version 1.0 of the game.
Only the last action is necessary, but you're likely to try many of the previous steps first.

This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!
I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
