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.'

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.
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.
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.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes, even better in person
