Title: Mizgir/Tale of Snowmaiden
Artist: Toshev Anatoliy
Size: 9x12.5x4
Size (inches): 3.5x5x1.5
Price: $195

Anatoliy Toshev, from the village of Kholui, is the talent behind this beautiful work. The colors that she chose fully represent the theme depicted. The subject of this scene is based on the popular Russian fairy-tale "Snow maiden".
The chosen scene of this story is enchanting and romantic. The Snowmaiden walks through the forest at night with her animal friends as she dreams of what could be. She wonders of what love is and what it means to love someone. Her fate is sealed as she is a child of two ethereal beings Father Frost and Mother Spring.
Therefore, her only requirement to survive among humans is not to love, as deemed by the Sun-god Yarilo.
The Snowmaiden is about to melt away forever, and Mizgir at her side cannot bear that he is about to lose his true love...
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Brown lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid is not hinged and the box rests on a flat bottom. It is signed with the initials of the artist, the village of Kholui and the title "Snowmaiden".
