Product Description

This lacuer miniqture was painted by Yuri Pozhidaev from Palekh village. St. George is best known for being the patron saint of Russia. He is also the symbolic figure of Moscow and its strength as the Russian capital. He is most famous for the miracle involving him fighting a dragon. Gold is used to outline and highlight much of the composition. No area of the composition is more impressive than the sky, which is filled in with gold and textured with more gold paint to show the rays of light and the intricacies of the sky. The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box; clear lacquer is added in layers that are polished to a gleaming finish. Gold scroll work frames the scene with small designs in each corner. There is a larger ornamentation pattern wrapping around the sides of the box, which uses aluminum and bronze paints to add crucial accents. The box has a hinge to its top and rests on four rounded feet.

Approx. 4"x4"x1.75".
