hanging a mirror

How can I hang a rather heavy horizontally oval mirror properly? As it is now, the mirror (refelction) is distorted..like a fun-house mirror. We replaced the original with a heavier..better quality (supposedly) mirror and it didn't change. Would appreciate any tips! Thank you.

The method used to hang the mirror will hove no effect on the distortion. But if it is a wood framed mirror you can use hook eyes and wire. If it is real heavy use four hook eyes and two strands of wire. I will look for a diagram.
