"Felix makes art?"

"Let me show you my workshop!" They pop.

It's wide open space, with huge window to a walled garden. The place does not immediately looks like a workshop, too white and clean and only hard-to-regonize tools.

But there are various piece of art. The vast majority made of metal, with no constraint with regards to materials and possibly even structural integrity. There is a diverse mix of statues of people, abstract shapes, kinetic and sound sculptures and some that are hard to classify.

Felix teleported them in front of a very abstract sculpture of a woman with a bird on her shoulders, made of impossibly thin and precisely shaped wires intricately woven together. The threads converge to her hands in a way that is very dynamic, from one angle it could be a scroll and from another it could be threads being woven together.

No one would be able to guess, but there is something about the posture, the hands and above all how the woman appears to be almost explaining something to the bird that is very obvious to Jean. And deliberately so.

"Felix had to think for a long time until he could come up with something that satisfied Zari's sense of plausible deniability and the other you sense of aesthetic. Officially the theme of this statue is a prayer about unusual creatures."

"Baruch Ata Adonay Eloheynu Melech Ha'olam. Meshaneh habriyot." Felix recites. "It's written around the statue, but it might be easy to miss at first glance."

He is looking at it through tear-filled eyes like -- well, a lot like he looks at the Felixes, really. Like it's the most wonderful thing in the world and he can't quite believe he's allowed to lay eyes on it and is torn between completely losing himself in adoration and spending every instant utterly focused memorizing it so that when it's inevitably taken away from him he can sustain himself off just the memory for the rest of his life.

They let him be. This reaction is not completely unexpected.

"Maybe I should've started with something not as strong, but I was sure that you'd notice this one moments after we landed here." Squeeze.
