As I became more educated about the collection and enamoured by the honesty and artistry employed in the restoration process of the relics, I came to appreciate that their fascination lay not only in their discovery, their age, artistry and origin, but also in their individuality, their fragility, their flaws and their imperfections. In a way, these sensibilities revealed their ‘humanism’. My aim was to create a series based on those pieces in the collection that particularly resonated with me in this way.
