Title: Lel's song
Artist: Golubenkova Yulia
Size: 7.5x6x3.5
Size (inches): 3x2.25x1.5
Price : $220 SOLD!


This beautiful box was painted by Fedoskino artist Golubyonkova Yu. The composition shows a scene from the popular fairy-tale "Snow Maiden". Young man and girls, old men and children are listening to a young shepherd lad, Lel, playing his flute. The Snow maiden is also here. She is enchanted by the wonderful tune and leads her suitor Mizgir by the hand closer towards Lel.
The composition is painted against the delicate yellow greenish background. Pieces of gold foil are scattered around the composition. With the help of gold foil the artist creates the golden leaves on the trees and some of them scattered on the ground; decorates the characters' costumes with bright golden ornaments and highlights their hats. The palette is very soft and restful to the eye. Dark colors are applied to outline the forms and silhouettes; the shapes are enhanced by highlights put on folds of the clothing and other details. The characters are life-like, their faces are individualized, their gestures and movements are easy and natural.
The sides of the box are adorned with original patterns of dots that are constructed from gold punch-outs (these are hand punched from metal gold foil and then painstakingly affixed by hand to the box).
The box is made out of paper-mache made. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The interior also includes the Fedoskino
