Bio Statement

Kintsugi and resilience . So far, so close. Today's article is one of the many articles in this blog that come from the heart, but also from chance.

A few weeks ago I found browsing the net an image that captivated me deeply. At first I did not know very well why, but it was an image that I knew I wanted to say something, an image that transcended beyond the image itself, an image that has given me the opportunity to learn and teach you what is meant by Kintsugi and how this term has a very close relationship with resilience .

In Justify your answer, there are many articles dealing with emotions and, in particular, about resilience . Hence, the article aims to teach you what is meant by resilience from the Japanese term Kintsugi.  I assure you that you will love it. Ready for strong emotions?

Kintsugi or resilience turned into art .

The Kintsugi is a Japanese term, but I also want you to understand this term as an art. The word Kintsugi does not have an easy translation into Spanish but it would mean something like ' union with gold' , ' repair with gold' or ' gold carpentry' .

This Japanese art that goes back to the 15th century consists of fixing the fractures of ceramic objects that, over time or by accident, have cracked or suffered some damage.

 The fractures of these ceramic objects are arranged with the help of a resin varnish mixed with gold dust. The Kintsugi , therefore, not only becomes an art, but also a philosophy of life where the breaks of the objects are seen as an element that embellishes the object itself rather than disfigure it, that is, the Kinsugi values above everything to the object and has a special cure when it breaks.

His philosophy is that instead of throwing the object, this object recovers, is restored so that, through the restoration, it looks again stronger and with all its history and splendor.
