Kintsugi (to patch with gold), or Kintsukuroi (to repair with gold), is the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery and ceramics using a lacquer resin sprinkled with powdered gold (or silver).

Rather than being concealed, the damage is celebrated and becomes a defining feature of the object.

As a general rule, the repaired artifact acquires far higher value and enjoys greater appreciation than it had in its previously undamaged state.

All is beautiful just as it is, what really is broken or whole?
