the Justinian II convex mirror

In Mirrors by Mark Evans

The Justinian II convex mirror is a revision of a previous mirror I designed. It features a thick surface of bronze, amber and topaz Venetian glass. I have added glass and resin cabochons in a range of sizes. Lots of them. After all, more is more.

The Justinian II convex mirror is about 23.5 inches in diameter. Soon it will be shipped to a new New York venue, KRB.

Jewelry for Walls!

Justinian the Great was the emperor of the Eastern half of the Roman Empire from 527 to 565. He presided over the expansion of the empire and a blossoming of Byzantine art and culture. The richness and splendor of his capital are admired to this day. The Hagia Sophia is his crowning glory.

There is plenty of biographical history about Justinian in books and on-line. There is a lot to know so put your reading glasses on and get to work.
