Title: Kitten "Downy"
Artist: Olisova Larisa
Size: 7x5x2
Size (inches): 2.75x2x0.75
Price : $395 SOLD!


Larisa Olisova is the author of this small, charming box. The work is called "Downy"; it is the name of a kitten painted on the box's lid. The kitten hunts after butterflies in the garden. Gold metal leaf shines through some of the butterflies. Gold paint is used to detail some of the flowers. The edges of the lid are adorned with silver punch-outs (silver scan patterns). Silver punch-outs can be also found on the box's exterior bottom, here the artist has also written her name, Fedoskino, the title and the year of 2008.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Light blue lacquer mixed with silver powder covers the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom.
