“Kintsukuroi” is the Japanese craft of repairing broken pottery with gold, increasing its value from the wounds. This concept can also be applied to people, as we need freedom to explore our darkness without feeling guilty. To understand better our wounds so they can finally heal, leaving scars behind which makes us more resilient. The result is quite the opposite, instead of hiding the scars, we celebrate them.
