Title: Cinderella
Artist: Volodina Tamara
Size: 6x7.5x2.5
Size (inches): 2.5x3x1
Price: $1100 $950

This beautiful piece of genuine Russian artistry was composed by the creative Volodina Tamara from the village of Fedoskino.
She has crafted elegance within fantasy, a surreal portrait of a well-known character of Cinderella. The characters have been dipped into gallons of personality. The setting is alive and full of flare. Add in the decorative elements of the piece and you have one very eclectic assembly of elegance and intricacy.
The sentimental tale of, "Cinderella", or "Zolushka" (it is the Russian version of the tale) tells about the poor and hard working girl who is rewarded in the end of the story for her kind heart and love to labor. The handsome Princes proposes marriage to her, and she becomes the Princess.
Here the artist has depicted the moment of the story when Cinderella's godmother, a kind fairy, presents the girl the ball-dress, the crystal shoes and the golden carriage.Everything should appear just in a moment! Now Cinderella is ready to attend a royal ball, but she doesn't know that this ball is organized to help the Prince to choose a bride.No doubt, it was Cinderella dressed in the rich elegant dress, and the happy end of the story approaches.
The composition is an utter delight. Each of two human figures has an individual look, and it is evident that the artist spent much time and focused painstaking efforts on working out each gesture, each trait of the face, and each minute detail of the costume.
The scene is painted in bright oil paints to create a festal mood.Gold metal leaves are shines in several parts of the composition: lady's dress, flowers and Thumbelina's dress.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Gray creamy lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. A hinge is fastened to the left of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, the title, and the village of Fedoskino at the exterior's bottom.
