Title: Thumbelina
Artist: Dudkina Irina
Size: 5x6.5x3
Size (inches): 2x2.5x1.25
Price : $395 SOLD!


This composition is painted by talented Fedoskino artist Irina Dudkina. It depicts a scene from the classic fairy-tale "Thumbelina" written by Hans Christian Andersen. Thumbelina was a tiny girl who was born from a flower. During the story she has many adventures, and meets many animals, some of them her friends and some of them were not so nice. For a long time she was alone, but she befriends a swallow who takes her away to a warm country where she meets a fairy prince. The prince takes her as his bride and they live happily ever after. This miniature shows animals that weren't friendly towards Thumbelina. Some of them, including the spider depicted almost in center of the composition, the mole, depicted in the left upper corner. But owing to the help of kind animals, the swallow and the butterfly, Thumbelina became the Princess of Elves, and the bride of a handsome Prince.
The box's exterior is beautifully decorated. Gold powder covers green surface of the box's exterior forming an attractive pattern. The box's interior is covered with red lacquer.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the left of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino and the year of 2009.
