Title: Sivka-Burka
Artist: Pichugina Margarita
Size: 15x15x4
Size (inches): 6x6x1.5
Price : $625 SOLD!


Margarita Puchugina from the village of Fedoskino painted this interesting box.
The box shows an episode from the Russian folk fairy-tale "Sivka-Burka". It tells about the adventures of the youngest of three brothers, Ivan the Simpleton. For his courage and easy temper, his father presented him the magic horse, Sivka-Burka that was ready to serve Ivan. With the help of Sivka-Burka's magic powers, Ivan managed to jump to the highest tower in the king's palace, where the king's daughter was standing, and take the ring she was holding. This made him the victor in a contest, and for performing this feat he was allowed to marry the tsar's daughter.
On this composition we can see magic horse Sivka-Burka with Ivan sitting on his back, giving a magnificent leap, high up into the air. The magic horse reaches the balcony where the princess stands and Ivan has time to take her ring and even to kiss her. The tsar and all people of the kingdom open their mouths with amazement. Ivan is a winner, and now the princess must marry him!
The scene is painted in different shades of green, red and gray. Gold paint details the costume of Ivan, costume of princess, harness of the horse and the walls of the palace.
The exterior of the box is covered with black paint, while the interior is traditionally red.
The painting is framed with a gold line. Two parralel lines are decorated the sides of the box.
The box is made out of paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition and the box rests on a flat bottom. Signed with the name of the artist, the village of Fedoskino and the year of 2018.
