A broken plate is usually a bad thing but can it also be a work of art?
Belgian artists Bernard Gigounon and Lucille Soufflet seems to think so. Together, they created a stunning sculpture of an enormous plate shattered into pieces.
The sculpture is being featured in La Louviere, a small town in Belgium that manufactured plates for over 160 years. The piece was created to explore the themes of ambiguity, impermanence and the passage of time.
