Story Behind the Art:
Born in 1965, Edmundo Contreras Aquise works in the 'andahuaylino' style. He uses painted glass and crackled finishes in a technique both traditional and modern. His motifs range from pre-Hispanic, colonial and ethnic to the Andean world and its wildlife. 'I inherited my interest in art from my mother. As an adolescent, I liked to create cartoons as a social protest (when terrorists threatened our land). I've exhibited my work at arts and crafts fairs, and in 1995 took first place in the Concurso Internacional para America Latina y el Caribe, winning the UNESCO Prize. One of my proudest moments was receiving the Vizcardo and Guzman Medal as a master artisan, awarded by the Peruvian Congress in 2002. My dream is for my art to be known and appreciated outside my country.'

I was looking for something unique to go in a living room and I was not disappointed! I love this mirror, I love that it came from Peru, and that I could keep an artist working. The colors are true to the picture which I wanted to blend into a blue and burgundy themed room.
I was it was a bit larger, but it works just fine size wise.
I would recommend in a heartbeat.
Irritating is much prettier in person as all the details are not visible in the picture. Craftsmanship is very nice. Color is very pretty. I have it hung on a dark blue wall a d it looks g rest. Happy with purchase.
