Color of abundance #5: Porcelain King Cake Figure
Three hundred years ago, to commemorate Epiphany, Catholics in France would prepare a cake and hide inside a bean symbolizing Christ child. The person who got the piece of cake with the bean would be blessed with good fortune. The passage of time has witnessed this tradition evolving, with beans being replaced by a variety of figurines made of ceramic or plastic. This ceramic figurine shown here is modeled after one of the Magi, also referred to the Three Kings of Orient. Its round and white ceramic surface is decorated with golden lines, a manifestation of traditional culture which you touch with your hands.
