There's something odd about that picture - the background is the same as the reflection.
I think the frame is painted or engraved onto a larger mirror.. but it does mess with your head a little :)
Ah yes - that sounds like a good explanation. I thought maybe the frame was empty and the mirror was on the opposite wall.
door into an alternative universe, but you need to know how to open it
haha. spot on. the frame is painted directly onto a full length mirror. cool huh?
