|An immigrant shipwright originally drew up the plans for this great waterwheel. His intent was to build it in thanks for the kindness shown him by the minder of the watermill. Unfortunately, the shipwright took ill and perished before he could turn his idea into reality. His daughter—for whom the wheel is named—labored mightily for ten years to see his dream fulfilled. Today, Figaga's Gift stands as a proud landmark of Gridania, and its unique "enclosed" design of the blades is recognized as an engineering wonder.
