the Surya Mirror

In All, Mirrors by Mark Evans

The Surya Mirror is a small gem-like object that is composed of layers of thin Venetian glass rods in bronze and gold on a gilded frame.  The center of the frame is a small, clear face that I made of poured, molded resin

This mirror is about 9.5 inches in diameter.

The Surya Mirror is in my Atlanta showroom, Ainsworth-Noah.  Call 1-404-240-2137 for more information.

Surya(also known as Aditya) is the Hindu god of the Sun. He is considered the creator of the universe and the source of all life. He is the supreme soul who brings light and warmth to the world. Each day he travels across the sky in his golden chariot pulled by seven horses and driven by red Aruna, a personification of Dawn. The god’s most famous  temple is at Konarak in Orissa, north-east India but he was worshipped across the Indian subcontinent. Still an important figure in Hinduism today, he is also a minor deity in Buddhism .
