Product Description

 Alexander Maslov is the talented Fedoskino artist who is able to make the magic world of a Russian fairy-tale come true. His favorite heroine of a Russian fairy-tale is the forest witch, Baba-Yaga and he likes to depict this heroine in his unique compositions. In this composition Baba-Yaga has gathered a full basket of poisonous mushrooms in the forest and now is having a rest near her wooden hut on chicken legs. She is accompanied by her servants: the black cat, the owl and forest birds. The composition is painted in a bright palette of oil paints. Gold metal powder shines through the oils in some parts of the composition and creates a source of light inside the hut on chicken legs. Round-shaped piece of mother-of pearl is used to create a sparkle of the full moon in the night sky. The ladybird painted on the basket and the spider sitting on his net behind Baba-Yaga look three-dimensional being painted on the pearl beads glued to the box's exterior. The composition is framed with a gold ribbon. Stylized gold ribbons can be also found decorating the box's sides. The box's exterior imitates a stone color (golden spots cover the turquoise background). The box's interior is of three tones: yellow-green, pink and violet that change each other in turn. On the lid's interior a rectangular shaped piece of mother-of-pearl is glued; the title of the work ("Babulya" derived from Baba-Yaga), the artist's name and the year. 6.25"x4.75"x2".
