the Endymion convex mirror

In Mirrors by Mark Evans

The Endymion convex mirror is a classic. After refinishing a frame from the fifties, I gilded it in silver. I then applied layers of clear Venetian glass rods creating an undulating depth; almost like glass lenses distorting the underlying frame.

The Endymion convex mirror is about 24 inches in diameter. It resides in my studio pending being shipped to one of my showrooms.

Jewelry for walls!

Endymion by Anne-Louis Girodet( 1991)

Endymion was a prince/shepard( only in mythology do you find a prince slumming it by pretending to be a shepard) in ancient Greece who was loved by the goddess of the moon, Diana/Selene. Endymion was put into a deep sleep, forever young by Zeus. Diana would visit her sleeping lover once a month( the result was fifty children!). Now we know why there is no moon once a month!
