Mexican Mirror by MadameManga Mexican Mirror by MadameManga

I imagine Luke Donagan's house is full of this sort of thing: a traditional form, but with elements that make it uniquely his. Like the death's head portrait of him tucked underneath the little projecting shelf, right where it can startle anyone who stoops down for a closer look...
