Product Description

This box has been created by Brezgina Svetlana from the village of Kholui. It features the traditional theme of a Russian winter troika. The troika rushes along the city street passing by people and churches. This theme is traditional for Russian lacquer miniature art and very popular among modern artists. The driver stands in the sleigh and shouts encouragement to his steeds, while the loving couple behind his back watches the beautiful winter landscape and talks.
The scene is painted in bright blue and white colors. It is richly decorated with gold and aluminum paints.
The edges of the lid and the box's sides are decorated with beautiful gold ornamentation.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. A hinge is fastened to the top of the composition. The box rests on four small round legs. It is signed by the artist at the bottom of the composition in gold paint.
Approx. 5"x4"x1".
