This fascinating Fedoskino box was painted by V. Artyomov. It shows a fairy sitting on the riverbank and admiring a beautiful flower. The composition is filled with different plants that is why it is mostly painted in different shades of green. The exception is the fairy painted in bright red, orange, yellow, pink and white tones. Her face, wings and beautiful costume are skillfully painted with a lot of details. The artist paints the scene in oil paints over a mother-of-pearl underlayer which creates a beautiful background shimmering with all tones of the rainbow.
The box is originally shaped and repeats the form of a shell. The lid of the box is made out of an unbroken shell (mother-of-pearl), whereas the base of the box is made out of paper-mache. The lid and its interior is covered with transparent lacquer, whereas the base is covered with black lacquer. The interior of the base is covered with red lacquer. The work is signed and dated (2003) by the artist.
