Stately, conservative, reckless and fragile – each with a coat of arms of a Frisian city on the kuras. The porcelain armor is like the Frisian tradition, which protects the people and at the same time makes them vulnerable. Tradition protects but is also the Achilles’ heel of society, just as porcelain lasts for a thousand years or is smashed with grit.
