Product Description

This beautiful box was painted by Boris Shavyrin.

The scene painted on the box's lid depicts Grand Father Frost and his granddaughter Snowmaiden in a winter forest.
The palette incorporates gray and white oils as the action takes place in winter, with addition of gold paints to give a feeling of magic and splendor. The effect of festivity is strengthened by the pieces of mother-of-pear inlaid into the costumes of both character. The branches of trees covered with white fluffy snow, that are also expressively painted.
