    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, a weaver. As an adolescent, I liked to create cartoons as a form of 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.'

      It was a finishing piece for a newly updated bathroom, it is just right for what I wanted.

    • Vibrant colors

      The mirror arrived promptly and well packaged (as things always do from O.com). I bought it to add some pop to my dining room but ended up using it in a guest bedroom instead. The colors are vivid and bold. The "gold" is more the color of brass and suited the bedroom, already a garden theme, more than the dining room. It's a lovely addition.
