Title: At the Edge of the Forest
Artist: Kirsanov Sergey
Size: 6.5x9.5x2.5
Size (inches): 2.5x3.75x1
Price : $475 SOLD!


This beautiful winter scene has been created by the master of landscape painting, Sergey Kirsanov. In his works Sergey likes to extol beauty of Russian countryside during various seasons. Here he has managed to express the edge of the forest in winter. The two lonely pine trees are grown on a bank of a little river.The scene is painted over two small pieces of mother-of-pearl that helps to reproduce realistically a sparkle of the sky and the river.
The scene is framed with so called "scan patterns" composed of tiny shapes hand punched from aluminum metal sheets and then painstakingly affixed by hand to the box. The box's exterior imitates a stone color (very thin gray veins are scattered against the black background). Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name.
