Story Behind the Art: Asunta Pelaez tells her story: 'At first my I husband's family taught me, then we united our skills and labor. I realized that the more I practiced, the more this craft won me over, offering me tremendous gratification. Now I consider it a way of life. This whole process demands incredible patience and attention to detail. My designs are inspired by nature, and by traditional scenes from my town and region. I feel very proud of the works that I create.'

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I do like this mirror a lot, but I feel I paid too much for something that looks like it was a craft project rather than a lovely piece with artistic merit. The painting is a bit sloppy and has a mass-produced feel rather than the unique piece I thought it would be. However, it works for the corner I placed it and from a distance you can't see the imperfections. The colors are lovely and blend well with the reds, yellows and putty colors in my decor. However, they were not quite as crisp as the picture would seem to convey. Overall it is nicer than similar products from the local retailers. This arrived with impressive packaging but one week later than my original estimate. This is my first experience with overstock.com. My experience was not stellar, but it wasn't dismal either. The uniqueness of the products may lure me back...
