Product Description

This box is an original masterwork of the Palekh artist Galina Kritova.This colorful painting based on the Russian folk fairy-tale of "The Snowmaiden" or "Snegurochka" which is Russian for Snowmaiden.
Snowmaiden isn't a human being. Her father is Old Man Winter and her mother is Fairy Spring.
The scene is painted in the traditional Palekh style. The details are enhanced with gold and aluminum paints. Gold and aluminum paints are also used to paint the attractive patterns that frame the box's lid, and wrap around the bottom part of the box's body. The box is constructed out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box sits flat. The work is signed by the artist and Palekh. Approx. 4.75"x3.5"x1.25".
