Kintsugi objects

Kintsugi (golden joinery) or Kintsukuroi (golden repair) is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.

Today marks the second time the Department of Awesome Antiquities has found adorable paw prints unintentionally preserved for posterity. The first time it was a dog’s prints preserved in ancient Roman tiles. These tiny toeses frozen in time belonged to a cat back in 16th century Japan who walked across a brand new earthenware plate before it had hardened.

This plate was recovered from the ruins of Yuzuki Castle located in Matsuyama, Ehime Prefecture, Shikoku, Japan. The castle was destroyed in 1585, but this precious plate survived.
