The item description states that this is hand carved of wood but severa reviews state it is not wood but resin. Can you please tell me what material it is really made of?
We purchased a pair of these wonderful, fanciful owl mirrors. The colors are muted and quite warm with greens, muted reds, browns, and soft gold. We have had lots of friends and family smile when they see these mirrors. They are on the small side and work well as a pair or in a small space. If you love owls or just the very unique and fun, this mirror could be for you!...

'My pieces are filled with life from the olden times and reflect the style of vintage pieces. Although those times are gone, I continue with that tradition so as not to lose our identity. I try to transmit my love for life and for nature: its flowers, birds and all the rich flora and fauna of our country.
'I live my life amid wood and patterns to cut it into shapes. I then carve them and, although the work is done by hand, I try to give them a perfect finish. I love to paint the colors after a careful and exquisite selection.
'I'd describe my work as life itself, and my existence together with it. When I was only 17, I created my first piece in wood and it was a great pleasure, an immense satisfaction for its esthetic. Today I haven't stopped practicing my art.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Muted red tones blended into the wood background between the owls and flowers do not show up online, but the color is so subtle that it creates areas that are eye catching. Packaged well.Read More
The mirror is very pretty but much smaller than I expected. It looked like carved wood but it's actually some other kind of material. For the price I paid for it I expected it to be heavier and of a nicer quality. If I had to do it over again I would not buy this item unless the price was much lower.Read More
Would have returned the mirror but return shipping too pricey.Read More
I should have looked more carefully before buying it. It looked like carved wood in the ad but is actually a resin material. Also, I did not like the multiple colors. Just not my taste.Read More
