Story Behind the Art:
Born in Apurimac in 1965, Edmundo Contreras Aquise works in the andahuaylino (Andahuaylas) style. He uses painted glass and crackled finishes in a technique that is both traditional and modern. His motifs range from the pre-Hispanic, colonial, and ethnic to the beauty and culture of the Andean world and its wildlife.
I inherited my interest in art from my mother, a weaver," he says. "As an adolescent, I enjoyed painting and liked to create cartoons as a form of social protest (when terrorists threatened our land). In this way I represented those difficult moments when students and country people faced danger from two fronts.
I learned a great deal from my companions in a craft workshop taught by Amilcar Andía, a gentleman from Andahuaylas. One of my friends was Juan Quintín, a painter, and another was Reinaldo Rivera, who had graduated from the School of Fine Arts. From them I learned a great deal, and through practice, I discovered more techniques.
My art strives to be a testimony to history and tradition. With the danger of extinction of certain art forms, I represent them in hand-painted wood, glass and ceramic. These take the form of objects that are utilitarian and decorative, such as home furnishings, mirrors, vases and more.
I've exhibited my work at arts and crafts fairs, and in 1995 took first place in the Concurso Internacional para América Latina y el Caribe, winning the UNESCO Prize. One of my proudest moments was receiving the Vizcardo & Guzmán Medal as a master artisan, awarded by the Peruvian Congress in 2002.

Overstock has sent wrong item x3
I've ordered this and am on my third attempt to receive it. The first 2 items received were the wrong item, first time overstock promptly placed new order for me, this time they've stalled making me wait for the 2nd item to be returned when both times it's their fault. Seriously think about ordering and wonder if I will ever receive, considering I purchased and paid for item 5 weeks ago.Read More

I ordered this mirror to hang at the end of a hallway. When I saw how beautiful it was I knew I didn't want to put it in a spot where it would not get the attention it deserves. It now hangs in our living room. I cannot tell you how impressed we are with the quality and workmanship. When my mother saw it she immediately ordered another Peruvian mirror from Overstock. Mom's is gorgeous too! Thank you Overstock for bringing these Worldstock Fair Trade items to your site!Read More
