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.'

  • A Real Focal Point

    Love, love, love this mirror! The colors are rich and warm. It hangs in my entryway and makes me happy every time I leave and enter my home.

  • This is gorgeous.

    This mirror was expensive but well worth it for the glorious artistry on the border. I splurged on it for my office and haven't regretted it a moment; it's everything I hoped it would be and then some.

  • Gorgeous

    I hung this in my newly renovated guest bathroom, and it's a stunner. As soon as I opened the package, which was very well padded, I knew that it was just what I'd been waiting for to finish my decor. A friend said I had taken a chance ordering a mirror through the mail, but I was confident that Overstock would get it to me safely with its careful packaging. I have beautiful granite in a brown/black pattern, and a copper/gold/brown vessel sink. The light fixture matches this mirror exactly and the entire ambiance is low key and beautiful. Compliments from everyone who enters the room. This mirror was a little more expensive than I had planned, but I love the careful painted design and general craftsmanship that went into the construction of the item. One of my favorite Overstock purchases to date. Highly recommended.

  • Gorgeous mirror

    This mirror is gorgeous. I'm in love with it! Be sure to put it in a spot where you leave enough room to walk past it as its rather deep and protrudes from the wall. It's really beautiful and came very well packaged.
