OJOS DE DIOS MIRROR
Handmade in Mexico City through traditional processes of brass- and glass-working, this mirror takes inspiration from the indigenous Wixárika belief in the “Ojo de Dios” (Eye of God), a kind of mandala which represents the five cardinal points of the culture’s cosmology. The form is one of the most important for this ancient Mexican culture and is often used in religious ceremonies. Melding this ancient worldview with contemporary design, this mirror from Neon Mood is sure to brighten up any room, and may just infuse it with a celestial calm worthy of a religious ceremony.
Due to their handmade nature, each and every mirror is slightly different – adding to the uniqueness and magic of the piece.
Neon Mood is a passion project from Jimena Fernández del Busto, a Mexican designer from Cuernavaca, Morelos, and based in Mexico City. Jimena has worked as an art director for more than 7 years and developed her career as an industrial and interior designer alongside this. Her curiosity led her to explore ancient indigenous artistic traditions, in which sacred geometry and vibrant mythologies blend in uniquely surreal and spiritual forms.
Neon Mood represents Jimena’s translation of the light, colors and shapes she experiences in her dreams into the language of design, through the framework of indigenous Mexican worldviews. The project spreads awareness of the rich heritage and ongoing value of Mexican craftsmanship by using traditional artisanal techniques of brass- and glass-working, creating inimitable pieces infused with a uniquely Mexican soul and history.
