Details

"My new favorite piece of art."

This is a unique piece of art that has a lovely function. It is beautifully made and I have received many compliments. The mirror was packaged so well for international shipping that it would have been impossible to break. Mr. Armando Ramirez is a very talented artist and respects Mother Earth by recycling items not needed any longer for their intended function.
