Title: Girl and Ducklings
Artist: Iliyna Irina
Size: 5.5x7.5x1.5
Size (inches): 2.25x3x0.5
Price : $625 SOLD!


Irina Ilyina is the author of this charming box that shows a little girl lying on the green grass. Three yellow ducklings are pecking seeds near the girl. The girl looks like an ordinary, modern girl. Her playful mood is successfully expressed here.
The composition is painted in blue and light green and yellow tones. A large piece of mother-of-pearl is set into the right bottom corner producing a special glamor. Shining gold paint is used to detail the girl's costume, some pebbles on the road and the grass painted at the background. The stars shimmering in the blue sky add a special charm to the scene.
The box's exterior is covered with blue lacquer mixed with silver powder. For additional decoration the metallic blue exterior is covered tiny stars painted in oils that are the same that the stars in the blue sky painted in the composition.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the left of the portrait, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, the year of 2005 and the village of Fedoskino.
