DescriptionSquare-shaped mirror frame. The front of the frame is composed of 86 square tiles; each side of the frame is composed of two rows of ten tiles. Each tile features a different image, enameled on the porous surface of the tile, that represents naturalistic figures (plants, birds, animals and an angel) as well as geometric motifs; some of these images are distributed over several tiles. The overall effect is that of a multicolor object, mostly white, blue, yellow and red. The square mirror at the center of the frame is located on a plane halfway between the surface and the back of the frame's mass.
