In the passanger we can easy recognize famous Russian poet Alexande Pushkin, portrait like similarity is obvious! Pushkin hides from the snowstorm in the sleigh while a driver encourages the horses.
Gold paint is used to detail the sledge, the characters' costumes and the horses' harnesses, manes and tails. This is work is simply amazing, very thin details! Check the enlarged image!
The scene is framed with a golden ornament.The box's sides are decorated with rich gold and silver paint ornamentation.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged to the top of the composition, and the box rests flat.
The work is signed with the artist's name, date (1953) and the village of Palekh in gold paint.
