Mughal Mirror

Painting on glass.

I got this idea from the Mughal paintings and clubbed my idea with their exquisite use of mirrors.

The mercury side of the mirror is first removed from the reverse side which converts a part of the mirror into glass. Now starts the painting on this glass portion from the reverse side.

The end result after framing is a beautiful Mughal Mirror.
