This is a mirror that I designed and created for one of my friends,
here on DA. It was inspired by the D&D games she runs that I've been playing in. The setting is hers entirely. Basically it's an empire where the rulers do not inherit their titles but instead are chosen from amongst the nobility of the land. Originally, an ancient artifact called The Arch did the choosing, but in the first campaign, our characters ruined that by putting the two halves of the Arch (black and white) together, thus releasing a trapped demon and a trapped god (or so we suspect). So now, in the second campaign which is set 50 years later, the emperors are elected by the nobility. There's a lot of political upheaval and it should be fun to see what happens this time around.
That's probably way more information than you needed.
Anyway, this Arch is after the two halves were put together and some time has passed - enough for a tree to grow up on the previously cursed ground under which the white half of the Arch lay.
I used the copper foil technique. The design is original, although I drew inspiration for my tree from Arthur Rackham's beautiful fairy tale illustrations. The mirror is recycled from a broken mirror left in the basement of my house when I moved in.
