Title: Tale of Snowmaiden
Artist: Zakharov Sergey
Size: 10x7x3.5
Size (inches): 4x2.75x1.25
Price : $1495 SOLD!


Famous Kholuy Master Sergey Zakharov is the talent behind this art composition.
This is a scene from the Russian tale of "The Snowmaiden" or "Snegurochka" (in Russian).
Snowmaiden isn't a human being. Her father is Old Man Winter and her mother is Fairy Spring. She is depicted here melting and flying to the skies and looking at the villagers. People are so happy and merry! They sing songs, and have fun enjoying every minute of life. She wants to be their friend and live among them. She wishes to know what people feel; and what love is... On the right side we can see Lel playing on the flute.
The colors taken from Zakharov's palette are extremely pleasing to the eye. Various shades of yellow, green and red are dominate here. Contrast is spectacular!Details are amazing!!!
The composition is painted on a lid, the edges of the lid are covered with a beautiful ornament painted in gold. The decoration of the sides is marvelous, richly painted in gold!
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes the interior of the work.
The lid is hinged from the top and the box rests on four small round legs.
The artist wrote his name, 2019, the title and the village name of Kholui at the bottom of the composition in gold paint. The artist does the same on the interior of the lid, but added that this work is his own original creation and left a more decorative signature.
