This peaceful landscape was pained by talented Alexander Simonov (1960) from the village of Fedoskino. It features locality typical for Russian countryside. It is filled with hills covered with fresh, green grass and bushes, the small river crossed by a small winding path running somewhere, the golden field of ripe wheat lined with the dense forest and the endless blue sky. Different shades of green suitable for reproduction of a summer setting have been used here. With the help of mother-of-pearl the artist has achieved the beautiful effect of the sky's brilliance.
The scene is framed with a gold line, the same as the sides of the box - they are decorated with 2 parallel gold lines.
The exterior bottom of the box is covered with black lacquer and the box's interior is covered with red lacquer.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition, and the box rests on four legs. The box is signed with the artist's name. Approx.size 7"x2.5"x1.5".
