Bucranium Mirror

This traditionally constructed and confidently carved pine and limewood frame is surmounted with a Bucranium or Ox’s skull, finished in a textured gesso, and containing a cleverly distressed mirror plate in two parts.

In the English Classical late C18th style, the original version of these large ‘guitar’ shaped looking glasses is attributed to the late Georgian architect James Wyatt, who often used the depiction of the draped ceremonial ox-head in his decorative plaster friezes.
