"I would like to glue this mirror over an excisting mirror. Can you tell me what the back is made of?"
Using alot of aqua/teal colors in my home & am a butterfly lover so....had to have. Lovely, decent sized piece. Actually would give it a 4 1/2, only because of some slight imperfections in whoever does the fine finishing work along the inner edges. Could have been sanded a little finer. Instead, irregular edges that detract from the overall beauty of the rest of the piece....

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.'

quality is really cheap, way too much money for plastic and not hand paintedRead More
I was very happy with the mirror, colors were very vivid. The pattern and the design was perfect with all of the other materials. Overstock really does have nice merchandise. I have been buying with the company for over two years and I have been pleased with all of my purchases with the exceptionof a couple of returns.Read More
