Inspired by the life work of his mother, Peru's Edmundo Contreras designs this wood decorative box. With a silver tone trim, it features reverse-painted glass panels with the image of a majestic tortoise against a blue sky. Reverse-painted glass involves a technique where motifs and designs are painted by hand on one side and then flipped over so that the images can be seen through its smooth surface. The hinged lid opens to reveal a silvery interior, perfect for simple decoration or for storing small items.
