Title: Mermaid
Artist: Knyazev Sergey
Size: 14x15x6.5
Size (inches): 5.5x6x2.5
Price: $1650

This originally shaped box is a creation of a talented artist Sergey Knyazev. The work is called "Mermaid" and shows a mermaid underwater. Mermaid is enjoying the games playing with a dolpfin. The scene is painted in between the ancient statues and ruins of Roman temples conceal under the sea.
To create a magic, aquatic atmosphere the artist has painted the entire scene on mother-of-pearl inlays that shine with a variety of undertones raging from aquamarine to violet and other blue tones. Gold metal dust is spread along the borders of the lid. Some elements of the composition are crafted three-dimensionally and this , no doubt, only additing a dept to this composition.
The box's exterior is covered with very pale, violet lacquer mixed richly with gold dust. For additional decoration this pale, violet background is studded with silver veins. On the box's sides Knyazev has painted various tropical fish using oils and silver paint. The scene depicted on the box's lid is framed with a golden band.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Its interior is traditionally covered with red lacquer. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition and the box rests on legs. The work is signed with the artist's name, the title, the year of 2009 and the village of Fedoskino on the lid's interior.
