The first lesson and theme would be that if you want to know the truth of something, you must be as objective as the reflection in a mirror. Mirrors reflect exactly what they see (the truth).

The second lesson would be that you can try to change your appearance or digsuise youself by using cosmetics and special lighting, but in the end...... age catches up.

Another lesson would be that people (mostly women) see the mirror as a little god. It's looked at multiple times all day long, and it's worshipped by many for what it shows in its reflection.
