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.'

I've kept it. I do sort-of like it. However, the tone of the gold edging makes it look a little cheap.Read More
The mirror is more of a dark cinnamon color than brown, but the design is gorgeous. I kept looking at this item online and couldn't quite thinking about it. Just had to order and I'm not disappointed whatsoever. I just recently had my home's interior painted and the livingroom area where I hung this mirror is done in gold. It is the perfect accent for the wall.Read More
