the Helios Convex Mirror

In Mirrors by Mark Evans


The Helios convex mirror was made after a trip to Venice.  The sunburst frame is encrusted with golden/amber Venetian glass rods.  The addition of the large cabochons was added to give more depth to the design.  The Helios mirror measures about 18 inches in diameter.

The name Helios refers to the Greek titan who rode his fiery chariot and horses circumventing the globe.  Helios was a beautiful man with the aureole of the sun surrounding his head.  Helios eventually transformed or combined into the god Apollo. In Greek and Roman mythology Apollo has been recognized as a god of music, truth and prophecy, healing, the sun and light, poetry, and more.

The Helios convex mirror is currently in my studio pending being sent to one of my showrooms.
