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.'

I was very happy with the mirror, colors were very vivid. The pattern and the design was perfect with all of the other materials. Overstock really does have nice merchandise. I have been buying with the company for over two years and I have been pleased with all of my purchases with the exceptionof a couple of returns.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes it was perfect.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great quality and I will not have to worry about it falling apart, well made.
How accurate was the sizing? I thought it was going to be bigger. I did not really check the size out which was an error on my part. I did not send it back because I liked it to much.
