#Kintsukuroi (n.) (v. phr.) – “to repair with #gold”; the art of repairing #pottery with gold or silver lacquer and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken.—Japanese | Appendix: Islam forbids the use of any pots, plates, or utensils made of gold or silver when eating. But such an art is acceptable as a form of art for display and such.
When the Japanese mend broken objects, they fill them in with gold. They believe when something's suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful. It's time we rethink our philosophy on aging.
