A striking SUN MIRROR from the Peruvian Highlands fashioned in hand carved wood with gesso and gilt covering. These Sun Mirrors are a throwback to the Inca people and their worship of the Sun. This gorgeous piece dates to around 1940 and has a diameter of 24 1/2 inches. The Peruvian Cultural Department export approval sticker is on the back. Lovely highly decorative piece.
