This heart is inspired by the Japanese art form, called ‘kintsukuroi’ which involves the repair of broken pieces of pottery with gold or silver lacquer. The cracks in the clay are consequently made into a feature and in fact the ceramics are more beautiful as a result.
This solution to something seemingly destroyed is such an astoundingly beautiful metaphor, particularly when applied to people or hearts that have been ‘broken’.
It reminds me of certain people who are kind, gentle and loving to others in spite of their flaws and able to see their ‘light’ when there may also be much darkness. The opulent gold revealing the previously separated fragments, is just like the healing energy from such gorgeous people. They allow one’s heart to not only feel whole again, but to also shine confidently like the sun!
