That which was broken

A small, exquisite and fragile artwork arrived at Dawyck, sent from Finland by the artist Hannele Rantala. She writes: “Inside of this package should be an egg. It was once broken, but I made it as new as I possibly could. Somehow it is not, after my restoration, as good as new. Something very big is missing. . . . find a peaceful place for this broken (but repaired!) thing to rest.”

Fragility, ephemerality, trust, wisdom and art are what Hannele sent.

So: Hannele Rantala, with Morven Gregor‘s photography, Dawyck Botanic Gardens & my suggestions:









I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong.
