Gilded

        Gilding is the process of covering an object in precious metals to enhance the quality and appeal of what lies beneath. The result is a new object worthy of praise yet there is always the possibility of cracks emerging through the surface. A seemingly impenetrable exterior can be broken as time persists but with these imperfections comes lessons, stories, and evidence that a full life has been lived.
