The Bench of Wonders
Snows, man, I felt something when I sat there. I did! You know, like a warmth here in my heart. I tell you, there's something going on there!The Bench of Wonders is, presumably, a magical bench located in the Union Square of Ueana. According to tradition, this bench will show any person who sits on it a wondrous miracle. However, many people are starting to believe that this bench should, instead, be named the Bench of Wondering. Apparently, everyone who sits on it ends up wondering when will the miracle appear. Needless to say, the bench is not actually magical in any way but simply a social experiment. It was found that many people prefer to trust a bench before trying to solve their problems by their own means. Not that this theory needed more proof, but it's a good way to hopefully make some people realize that trusting a bench is dumb. The Bench of Wonders has become a great tourist attraction and is now considered a protected monument by the Eimaui Confederation.
The Bench uses the traditional architecture style from the beginnings of the first millennia. It's made out of a single huge block of stone, flat at the top, with no back. Its three legs shaped like anthrophormized land fish heads, a native species of the Archipelago. These creatures are known for their extreme lack of intelligence; their depiction as humans under the bench is quite telling.
