Product Description

This box was painted by  Fedoskino artist - Elena Oganova. "Morning in the Pine Woods" as this work is entitled was originally painted on canvas by Ivan Shishkin.

Exhibited in the Moscow's Tretyakov Gallery, it is one of the most popular pieces viewed in the entire museum. It has become something of a national symbol for Russia, which lacquer miniature artists were quick to adopt into their work.
Painted originally in 1889, the scene shows a mother bear watching her three cubs playing on the fallen trunk of a tree. The landscape, executed in transparent technique, presents real Russian impenetrable thickets with mighty firs and pines, lacy foliage and lush grass.

The box is constructed from paper-mache and large shell. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The box has a hinge from the top of the scene, and rests on wavy platform. The work is signed by the artist.

Approx. 4"x4"x1.25".
