Product Description

This box is a creation of a talented artist from the village of Palekh. The box shows us  the bullfinches sitting on a branch of the rowan tree. These red-breasted birds look very beautiful when they sit on the white snow. When summer comes the showy red breast of these birds disappears, and then the bullfinches look like ordinary birds. The colors depicted here and the quality of the painting are giving us an illusion of the three-dimensional view.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition and the box sits flat.The work is signed by the artist.
Approx. 4"x3"x1.25".
