'My name is Asunta Pelaez. At first my I husband's family taught me, then we united our skills and labor. 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. 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.'

Our guest bedroom has a theme from all over the world. Though the influence is mainly from India, there are elements from Malaysia, Greece and now Peru. This has been a wonderful addition to the room and hangs just above the nightstand. It's lovely and a great price and supports a great cause that puts artists in touch with consumers that we might not ever get to experience. Bravo!Read More
This mirror is very beautiful, but be careful when you are measuring to hang it on your wall. Although you wouldn't be able tell by just looking at it, mine was not perfectly symmetrical. I originally aligned the nail with the center of my door, but when I hung up the mirror the right side of the mirror was almost a full inch closer to the edge of the door than the left side making it distractingly off-center. I remeasured where to put the nail by measuring the space between the sides of the mirror and the edges of my door and marking the top. Now it looks great!Read More
This beautifully crafted mirror lends an exotic touch to a wall. The overall effect is subtle, but on closer examination, the quality of the painting stands out. The mirror was well-packed and arrived without damage. I LOVE it!Read More

my sister loved this gift, which was packed so well it could have been dropped from a 2 story building and not broken the glass.Read More
