Kylo Ren mask

Kylo Ren mask

The design of Kylo Ren's repaired mask is possibly based on kintsugi, a centuries-old Japanese art to repair broken pottery by joining them together with golden lacquer, giving the fractures a unique golden pattern. In Japanese culture, the kintsugi technique also stands for highlighting imperfections and giving new life to a broken object, which may be symbolic for the character: By repairing his mask, he attempts to revive his Kylo Ren persona, despite the failures he had endured in his past.
