Detailed coral painting scrolls across this elegant box. In reverse glass painting, the design is silk screened onto the back side of the glass. The painting is done “back to front”: details painted first, then larger color areas, and finally a background color. Reverse painting requires great care and skill, as the visual “surface” is painted first then layered over, so errors cannot be corrected. The art of reverse painting dates to the Middle Ages. An heirloom to treasure from Peruvian artisans.
