New project, Edo period figure, traditional, lacquer based kintsugi

Here is a very damaged porcelain figurine from the Edo period. I got it because the face is outstanding and I like pieces that have gone through a hard time. The piece has been dropped on its head and had it glued back on, the left hand has been lost, the right foot too. The sleeves of the kimono on both sides have been broken and partially repaired on one side. It will take a long time to get back together.
