Peruvian artist Marcos Luzalde creates spectacular illusions with hand-painted finesse on the reverse side of glass tiles. The frame includes a spectacular double border, which Luzalde carves by hand from quality mohena wood.
"Woodwork makes me feel good about myself because it means it's a way of preserving an aspect of Peruvian artistry...."
Jose Marcos Luzalde Rosales was born on the 19th of March, 1952. He is a self-taught artist who began to work at the age of 17 at a neighbor's workshop. After only a year, Marcos decided to take the plunge and venture on his own, gradually gaining renown for the beauty and quality of his work.
He is the proud father of five children – two of his daughters have become his eager students as they follow him down this artistic path. He teaches them everything, from designing a piece to carving and applying the right finish.
To Luzalde, his craft is like a hobby; he's been dedicated to it for over 35 years and to him it feels like only yesterday when he began. "Woodwork makes me feel good about myself because it means it's a way of preserving an aspect of Peruvian artistry," confides the carver. Having met and surpassed all the challenges that establishing his own workshop implied, Luzalde is confident that his work will please Novica customers' expectations.

I just now received my ""Winter Sun"" mirror & to say I am happy is an understatement. This mirror is exquisitely beautiful.. a stunning piece of art. Extremely well made.. you couldn't find a flaw even if you looked through a magnifying glass. It is going to look stunning over my fire place. It arrived in perfect condition & was very well packaged. I will definitely recommend it to any one considering buying this. You won't regret it. Thank you so much Mr. Luzalde & Novica.
Marcos, I purchased 2 of the fleur de lis mirrors. They arrived 10 minutes ago. I hung them up and they are absolutely stunning. Thank you for the beautiful pieces of art.
I received the beautiful Emerald Stars mirror recently. It was my treat to myself after moving into a new apartment. It is just as pictured on the website and completely met my expectations - so expertly packaged and arrived in beautiful condition. It now hangs over a cabinet in my front hall where I see it many times a day. It is so unique. My purchase experience and the communication from NOVICA was wonderful - I would order again any time and highly endorse the beautiful work of Marcos Luzalde.
Just received the Mohena Sunbeams mirror today, all the way from the Andes to Alaska! It arrived in perfect condition, expertly packed, and even more beautiful than it looked in the photo. We are very happy with our NOVICA purchase and our entire online shopping experience. This is truly a stunning piece and we got it delivered to Fairbanks. Thank you!
I have two of Marcos' mirrors and I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are unique, detailed and are the crowning glory in our newly designed home. The paintwork layered beneath the glass on each mirror has a gloriously evocative sense of faded decadence and the detail in each stroke is the work of a truly skilled artisan who has perfected his craft. I am proud to own such beautiful items. Thank you Marcos.
I have ordered several of your mirrors. I love them. I wish you made some of the smaller ones in silver. I would order more.
I bought the Mohena Mirror ""bronze sun"" I love suns. I've always had a thing for decorating with suns. I had a decorative mirror in my foyer but my husband had accidently broke it. I'm actually glad he did or I would have not had the pleasure of purchaseint the Mohena Mirror ""bronze sun"". It is a beautiful wood painted sun burst mirror. It really adds to the entrance of my home. I know where I will be look the next time I'm in the market for a new mirror.
I purchased the sunburst mirror and was amazed at the quality for the price. I have been looking for such a mirror at any price for over two years. The mirror actually arrived before the delivery date and in perfect condition. I will enjoy telling people where this amazing mirror came from.
After a recent trip to Peru I saw some beautiful sun mirrors but couldn't bring one back in my little backpack. I was so pleased when I saw the selection of sun mirrors on NOVICA and knowing I was helping the local industry was a great bonus. I chose the winter sun mirror and was not disappointed when it arrived. It is absolutely beautiful! It was packaged very well and arrived with no problems. It is a fantastic item and brings back great memories of Peru every time I look at it. Thank you!
The mirrors are fantastic! I ordered two to put in a grouping with a third mirror that I already owned. When they arrived I saw that they are so much more beautiful than the original mirror, I had to order another from Mr. Luzalde to complete the set. Could not be more pleased. They were packed very securely and arrived in perfect condition from Peru. Thank you for making such beautiful art for our home!
Just received my first Novica purchase, a star-burst mirror by Marcos Luzalde--and I could not be happier with this piece. The mirror is very dimensional, light catching, and hangs perfectly. It is just what I wanted but could not find locally, and it is absolutely beautiful on the wall. Pat in Ohio, USA
Just received the Mohina Star-burst mirror and absolutely love it. It is exactly what I was looking for and the craftsmanship is excellent. Surprisingly fast delivery and mirror was well protected by the packing. An excellent first purchase from Novica. I will certainly direct friends to Mr Luzalde's mirrors.
I just received my mirror by the artist Marcos Luzalde. It is so beautiful, a wonderful work of art. I can't wait to put it up and show it off for all to see. I am extremely pleased with this purchase. It looked great on the Novica site, but it looks even better in person. Although this was my first purchase from Novica, I'm sure that it will not be my last. I am so happy to support the artist by making this purchase.
Encontre este website por casualidad porque queria comprar un espejo para nuestro nueva casa. A mi me gusto el ""garland"" (que es ovalado) y a mi esposa le gusto ""crown of flowers"". Compramos los dos y desde ahora solamente tenemos la oportunidad de ver la que es oval, y es precioso. Estamos esperando estar instalados en nuestra nueva casa para poder abrir el mas grande, porque realmente esta muy bien embalado. La calidad es muy buena y lo recomendamos mucho. Muchas gracias. I found your website by chance, because I was looking for a mirror to buy my wife for our new house. I liked the ""garland"" (oval shaped one)and my wife liked the ""Crown of Flowers"" mirror. We bought both of them and so far we have only had a chance to open the oval one and it is beautiful. We are waiting to open the larger one when we are in our new house, since it is extremely well packed. The quality of the mirror is very good and we would highly recommend them. Thank you.

I have wanted to write for a year now. I bought a mirror last christmas for a friend and this year I am in the process of sending one to my brother for a gift. They are just beautiful and I wanted this artist to know what my friends, family are saying. His work is so outstanding and the prices are reasonable for the beauty and craftsmanship. Thank you so much. Your customer service has also been excellent in the past. Laurie Lara
