Chinese Prince of saved Lives

Breaking plates is a specail Hungarian habit on weddings in the midnight, when the newly fresh husband breaks one or more plates on the floor with his legs. Through this action is symbolized the fact that he has lost his former life and a totally new will begin. This little thing occured into my mind when I saw this artwork which uses broken plates for its design.

The artist of these stunning porcelain dress is Li Xiaofeng (Beijing, China) who came up with this genius artistic idea. It is even more special If we look that he used folk elements and inspiration directly from his own nation’s culture, China. He creates clothing from porcelain fragments from the Ming, Qing and Song dynasties and even more amazing are that they are wearable.

Take a closer look after the jump…
