Bathed in the light of dawn, golden blossoms illuminate a glossy midnight surface. Edmundo Contreras portrays them on a magnificen...t octagonal mirror. Painted by hand on the reverse side of glass panes, they evoke the majestic designs in Peru?s colonial palaces. About the Artist: 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, in 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.?The Edmundo Contreras Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic.

This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic. Product Features: Story Beh...ind the Art: 'I'm Khalid Ali. As a child I was very naughty and would always do things my way. Even in school I was known as the mischievous boy and at home as 'Dennis the Menace. But as I grew up, I understood the value of hard work. My father was a very hard working person and he is the one who taught me the dignity of labor. It is because of him that I am here today. My father started a small workshop in 1959 where he crafted artistic furniture using brass foil embossing. He has been doing that for ages until I took over about a decade ago. Our designs are basically inspired from the ancient Mughal style. But today we incorporate modern motifs into the ancient technique and style.' What is Worldstock?
