What To Do With Mirror Above Fireplace?

Q: We're renting a house which came with this huge mirror over the fireplace. It's mounted to the wall to prevent it from tipping forward and it's really heavy. I'd like to keep it because it fits the fireplace and it throws a lot of light into the room. I've been considering getting some ornate framing material for its edges but because of the weight and wires I'm stuck for how I might boost it higher or keep it flush with the wall without changing the wires or accidentally ripping through the plaster wall?
