The colorful art of Cajamarca finds expression in this wall mirror, hand-painted with elaborate detail by Asunta Pelaez. The mirror is surrounded by painted glass panels beaming with golden light like the brightest star in the Peruvian firmament.
About the Artist: Asunta Pelaez tells her story: '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.'
