the Argonautica convex mirror

In Mirrors by Mark Evans

The Argonautica convex mirror is made of a custom carved wood frame that is lacquered in black and metallic bronze. The top of the frame surrounding the mirror is layered with mica slivers mixed with pyrite dust. The “rays” are pyrite obelisks and the pyramids at the center are also pyrite. It took my almost a year to find the right pyrite pieces for this mirror.

Its heavy!

The Argonautica convex mirror is about 21 inches in diameter. It is in my studio pending being shipped to one of my showrooms.

Jewelry for Walls!

The Argonautica mirror is named after the dragon who protected the mythical golden fleece in the legendary Odyssey by Homer. This myth is pretty well known but if you want a very entertaining movie version find Jason and the Argonauts( 1963) created by the stop/motion genius Ray Harryhausen,
