First of all I also found out relatively recently about kintsugi, and like many ideas from the East that I also admire I love this way of thinking, that everything in this imperfect existence, not being able to achieve perfection - which would just neutralize existence alltogether by being a paradox - , is, paradoxically, perfect in its imperfection. Viewing imperfection as true perfection, uniqueness and completeness, which also touches on the whole Yin-Yang duality, good and evil, oposites transforming into the other and actually being the same as the other at their core, just another face of the coin, wabi sabi, mushin... these sort of ideas make me really love Eastern philosophy systems.
That's why it's great for me to see your own take on such an important concept in my opinion. I love the fact that you didn't use the standard precious metals fillings, but instead opted to show the character as being illuminated and having such a serene expression. Also the shards transforming into feathers, or just mixing up with feathers coming from the broken lines, also drives home the point that, through hardships, your character achieves a higher state of mental and spiritual development.
Technically speaking love the aparent graphic-like simplicity of this work, not to mention the beautiful light-and-dark balance. Also the character's expression is wonderfully done and really drives home the point of an inner transformation.
What more can I say, this work really spoke to me and I'm really grateful you chose to depict this wonderful philosophical idea in your art. Thank you for creating it and for sharing it with us, for me at least it means a lot and reminds me I am perfect in my imperfection, something I need to realize more often
