I was amazed at how quickly it arrived and how well packaged it was! The wire on the back is placed for horizontal hanging - not for the full-length mirror vertical version I had planned on, but that can be easily corrected. I have made considerable effort to research the Adinkra symbols that are carved and painted on the mirror and they, unfortunately, do not appear to even remotely resemble Adinkra symbols. While the mirror is lovely, well crafted and unique, I'm afraid I'd have to give it a thumbs down for authenticity.
The mirror first pictured was out of stock and this mirror design was replacing it. I prefer the color and look of the first mirror I ordered but also like this one. Perfect size for area I needed it for and it serves as a full length mirror even though it is smaller than that.
I The colors are not bright enough to meet my expectations. I had previously had a mirror with a painted frame and it added light to the room. The wood on this, while quite nice, gives off a dark hue. I'm thinking about ways to brighten it up. Also, the mirror is not beveled, which makes it look inexpensive.
