Product Overview

This small box is a creation of the Fedoskino artist Olga Smirnova, who is an admirer of cats. Here she has painted three curious kittens. The palette is chosen to give the kittens a touch of realism. The brushwork is very intricate and even allows a viewer to see the kitten's fur as if it were really furry.
 The box is constructed from paper-mache. The kittens painted on mother of pearl.  Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name and Fedoskino. Approx. 4"x3"x1.25".
