Thinking about layers, continued

I have given thought to the reflective aspect of the work. By using a mirror spray or paint of some sort, the viewer will see a slightly unclear vision of themselves within the profiles of the Ancestors. This act of viewing a reflection will cause personal reflection on the work itself. I need to be careful with the reflective surface because I don't want any references to the industrial. I thought of coating it in a layer of encaustic. This would uphold the organic feel of the work without letting the mirrored surface take over. Faces reflecting faces. Different sets of values staring back at you.
