    Story Behind the Art:

    Asunta Pelaez says, 'I have been dedicated to this art form since I was 17 years old. I realized that the more I practiced, the more this craft won me over, offering me tremendous gratification. Now I consider it a way of life. I create a variwty of beautiful mirrors, coasters, boxes and trays. For the designs and illustrations, I use India ink to produce the finer details and outlines. Finally for colors I use tempera paints and gilt. This whole process demands incredible patience and attention to detail. My designs are inspired by nature, and by traditional scenes from my town and region. I feel very proud of the works that I create, and I look forward to sharing them with more and more people around the world.'

      This is the second mirror of this Peruvian style I've owned, and they are both absolutely lovely. The photo doesn't really do it justice. The intricacy and vivid color of the frame is simply beautiful. My one quibble with this particular mirror (not true about my other one, which I also bought through Worldstock and which is differently shaped) is that the actual mirror part of it is a little small. You can't really tell that from looking at the photo, but it's mostly meant as a decorative piece. If you're looking for a mirror to check your face in close-up on the way out the front door it will probably be OK, because you'll be only a few inches from it; but anything which has the viewer much further back than that, it simply doesn't show enough. That said, it is an awesome decorative mirror, and if that's what you're looking for with only an occasional glance into it as a mirror, it's terrific. We're decorating our sitting room in mirrors and this is definitely the showpiece of our collection so far! I will buy another of these Peruvian mirrors, when I can afford to. Meantime, I recommend them wholeheartedly.
