Broken Whole

Part of a collection by Yee Sookyung

“When the Japanese repair broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something has suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful.”

This photo got a lot of positive feedback on my Tumblr, and rightly so. It’s gorgeous, and the caption enhances that beauty.
