I ordered 3 of these unique mirrors to hang in a long, dark hallway. They are very colorful and the dimentionality of each adds a special architectural element to the narrow space. The mirrors reflect light which also helps make the space much more inviting. The metal is very gold and I was afraid it might be "too much" but again, it adds color and aliveness to the hall. Thank you for such beautiful and unique workmanship!
