Florid garlands float into a stunning medallion that frames a mirror by Edmundo Contreras. The Peruvian artist acknowledges his fascination with Colonial decorative trends as he hand-paints the motifs on the reverse side of glass tiles, before setting them on a wooden frame. After coating with lacquer, Contreras marks each florid tile with golden purpurine accents.
