Title: Wooden Church
Artist: Mikhaleova Anzhela
Size: 4x4.5x2
Size (inches): 1.5x1.75x0.75
Price : $375 SOLD!


This beautiful landscape with a small wooden church is a creation of Anzhelica Mikhalyova. The scene is painted over an inlay of mother-of-pearl. The palette is very stylized to create a surreal atmosphere within and around the structure. The cathedral's linear configuration is very accurate and amazingly shows microscopic detail on the box's miniature surface area. The majority of the detail in the structure is painted with oil lines applied in layers as to include the illusion of depth. In the sky the artist adds an amazing mixture of thin gold paint with white paint swirling in transparent harmony over the mother-of-pearl shine through the background.
The scene is framed with a shining, gold band; two parallel gold bands can be found wrapping around the box's sides.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the left of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The box is signed with the artist's name and the village of Fedoskino.
