Title: Nutcracker
Artist: Levutskova N.
Size: 12.5x9.5x2.5
Size (inches): 5x3.75x1
Price : $375 SOLD!


N. Lavronnova from the village of Fedoskino created this splendid box. It features a scene from "The Nutcracker", a Christmas fairy-tale written by E.T.A Hoffman. The story tells about adventures of a little girl during the Christmas night. All her toys became alive and started speak like people. Her favorite toy, the Nutcracker, became her suitor and defender from the Mouse King. Here we can see the Nutcracker attacking the mice, the soldiers of three-headed Mouse King.
The scene is painted in the realistic style with a lot of different details. Light brown and gray tones dominate here. To create the brilliance of Nutcracker's costume the artist paints it over a thin layer of gold paint.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The scene is framed with a gold line, while the box's sides are decorated with two parallel gold lines. The box has a hinge above the composition and rests on a small platform. The work is signed and dated (2005) by the artist.
