Details

The art of reverse painting on glass was brought to Peru by the Spaniards who settled there in the 15th century. Local artisans emulated the style and in time, the technique became recognized as a Peruvian craft tradition. Here, Peruvian artisan Gelacio Giron paints ethereal butterflies on the hinged lid of a handcrafted wooden jewelry box. The blue, black, and pink winged creatures flit amidst delicate blooms on a background of ochre and gold. The box has a single compartment.

"Better than the picture!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Some companies have fantastic photographers that make a product look better than it actually is but this is one of those surprises where the product is better than the picture. I'm *very* happy with it and my nieces were overjoyed with theirs.

This is a truly beautiful piece of art with the use of a mirror. I love the golden tone and the painting of the birds and flowers. I am looking for the best place to use it my house----a wonderful problem to have. This was a gift for myself.

"Wow, just beautiful"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

These are even more wonderful than the photo, in fact almost too beautiful for use as coasters. I am displaying some of them. They came extremely well wrapped--I was very impressed. There were so many layers of wrapping that I wasnt sure where the innermost one was and I accidentally nicked the side of one of the coaster with my scissors, so fair warning. You will not be disappointed with these.
