Koen Jacobs

When God created the earth, he wanted to radiate his divine light to create life. This light was so powerful that it would destroy everything it touches. To break the light, 10 vases were create to function as a filter. However the divine light was so strong that it broke 7 vases into shards which were scattered around the world, which caused evil. The shards are waiting to be reunited with God. People believe that it was necessary for the vases to break in order bring diversity into the creation of life. The three porcelain shards that I have chosen I will turn into an animal pendant.


当上帝创造地球时,他想放射出他的神光来创造生命。这道光是如此强大,以至于它将摧毁一切它所接触的东西。为了打破这道光,人们创造了10个花瓶作为过滤器。然而神光太强了,它把7个花瓶打成了碎片,散落在世界各地,造成了邪恶。这些碎片正等待着与神重逢。人们认为,为了给生命的创造带来多样性,花瓶有必要破碎。我选择的三块瓷器碎片,将变成一个动物挂件。
