The title is metaphorical and refers to the fragility of human life. That is why I chose the pistol for danger and metaphorically the porcelain soup tureen for the fragility of life. The twists and turns of life crack and bring down someone from the weight of catastrophe and suffering. Yet, human will and the instinct to stand up again keeps their spirit intact
