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.
