Story Behind the Art:
Peru's Edmundo Contreras says, 'I inherited my interest in art from my mother, a weaver. As an adolescent, I enjoyed painting and liked to create cartoons as a form of social protest, when terrorists threatened our land. Now I specialize in painted glass and crackled finishes, a technique that is both traditional and modern. My themes range from the pre-Hispanic, colonial, and ethnic, to the beauty and culture of the Andean world and its wildlife.'

There was no craftmanship. The wood brame and edges are a bright gold point. The depth from the wall coming forward to the mirror is much larger than expected. Overall a disappointment and low quality.Read More
Mirror is very pretty, and seems to be well made. It is deeper than it appears in photo and is not flat. The center sticks out 3 inches from the wall, and the frame tapers down to the wall. So it looks much bigger than indicated by the measurements.Read More
