This box has been painted by a talented artist Otryaskin Alexey from the village of Fedoskino. It shows the panoramic view of Red Square with famous St. Basil's Cathedral and Kremlin cathedrals.
The color palette reflects the winter season and the realistic view of the panorama. Mother-of-pearl shines through the skies. Gold paint is used to highlight the domes and crosses of the cathedrals.
The scene is framed with a brown line. Gold flowers decorate the box's sides.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Dark burgundy lacquer mixed with a silver powder is used to paint the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition, and the box rests flat. The work is signed with the artist name, Fedoskino and title "Moscow. Red Square". Approx. size 3.5"x3"x1.5".
