Man on the Bench invites the passersby to sit on the bench and share a happy moment with him. He is a ‘cartoonish’ person with a small head, big body and very large feet. Somewhat overdressed, he seems to be taking a break from his busy schedule to sit on the bench and read a book.

The work is deliberately placed near a taxi stand, inviting us to also take a break while waiting for the taxi. Notice the small people and buildings decorating the arm and back of the bench – a mark of Metzler’s attention to details.
