Description:

The gray sky meshes with the snowy landscape in a medley of color. Barren trees stand without shivering in the frigid breeze. Lakes frozen over have trapped fish where fishermen saw holes to catch a meal. Homes fill the skyline with smoke billowing from their chimneys as the people inside get ready to conquer the day. All will be quiet until spring when the trees fill in with greenery and the birds come back. Then the snow will recede, the ice will melt, and golden mornings like this will have to mesh themselves with enlivened green landscapes.
This wonderful winter landscape was painted by a talented Fedoskino artist Sergey Kirsanov.
The painting of this box has amazing details! Oil-based paint is the main medium used to paint this composition. The palette is very precise, which uses whites and grays to fill in the landscape. To give the effect of diffusing light coming from behind the tree the artist paints over an inlay of mother-of-pearl. The layers are thin and the colors give the inlay its luminescent quality. He also uses a small amount of aluminum powder in the paints for added glow. It is amazing how much detail the artist paints on the surface of this box!
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 has a hinge above the scene and rests on a bordered bottom. Upon completing the work on this piece the artist signs his name at the bottom of the composition.
