the mirrors were use to do just that! This very decorative broom was used in the houses of Thrace and norther Greece in general.
YOU ARE ALL WELCOME

@Devi: brooms are to be used! Greetings from Athens
Mmm, very nice - not only can you sweep your home clean but at the same time you sweep the evil out and can check that you look good! Every girl's dream broom. :)

That is beautiful! Very good for wiping away evil...and creative reflection in that tiny mirror!

@Abena: well the mirror does the trick, the evil gets terrified when he/she sees their own image on the mirror!
