You recorded the moment / you lost the moment
A leftover from the house where he spent his childhood time.
The owner of the antique vase, who has Alzheimer’s disease, is keeping this vase as it was the seat of the head in the house where he spent his childhood. The only tangible thing he remembers about that house is this vase. To him, this vase is a reminder of his childhood. As he sees the vase, he remembers the conversations, laughter and activity in the living room. Together with the vase, the colorfulness of those days is carried to his home.
Although the house where the owner of the vase lives has changed, the antique vase is displayed in the living room and on a coffee table, as it was in his childhood.
