Like the turtle fountain in Rome...

This is an old walnut (I think) mirror frame with a shelf that I've embellished with a line of marching turtles and painted with a blue bronze surface. The sturdy matte finish is many layers of many kinds of paint media, including acrylic paint and spray metallic paints. It has a rough texture similar to real bronze. Most people have had to touch it to see that it's not metal.

The frame is sturdy with a strong lip to hold a mirror. (You can of course frame whatever you like in it.) The shelf is strong and very securely attached. There is an old wood backing that I include. The turtles have small hard shells with soft bodies. They are lightweight plastic and were painted before and after being attached with epoxy. The color photos are good except for the one detail that's too green. (I include it because it gives an idea of the turtles marching on the shelf.)

The frame measures 32" x 21". The opening is 24" x 18", including the 1/2" lip. The shelf is 6" deep. The turtles are 3/4" from nose to tail, and I include one that you can let escape. Stick it to the wall near the mirror.

I've attached two small picture hangers and a picture hanging wire to the reverse, so it will be a simple matter to hang it.
