Description:

This superior Russian lacquer artistry was created by the talented Oleg Yastrebov of Fedoskino. His ability to depict strikingly decorative compositions is second to none.
The work is called "Night Butterfly", and features the boy, sitting on the roof almost under the moon and looking at the Butterfly.
The scene is painted in gray and white paints against the black background.
Gold powder highlights the roof and the boy's trousers, while aluminum powder is used to highlight the big moon. Multicolored spangles are sprayed throughout the scene for additional decoration.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. A hinge is fastened to the left of the composition, and the box rests flat. The work is signed, and dated (2008) by the artist.
