The mirror reveals a larger carved shell motif near the top. Scrolls resemble
stylized waves as they flow back from the shell.
Imagine the repetitive cutout shapes and circular patterns on each side
of the mirror as underwater effervescence, as a smaller fallen shell floats below the larger shell and appears gently bonded by aquatic plants.
The light of the sun, the sunburst at the top of the mirror, makes visible
all life’s creatures under the sea. The mirror visually feels light at the top with a rhythmic, wavy motion transforming into harmony in the bottom,perhaps representing an ocean floor laden with a shell.

Beautiful . . . it would look great on the wall just inside my front door. I wish I could afford it!
