Title: Tale of a Sleeping Princess
Artist: Bogachova Nina
Size: 8x6x2
Size (inches): 3x2.25x0.75
Price: $495 $375

This profound presentation of genuine Russian artistry has been created by N. Bogachyova from the village of Palekh. It features several well detailed scenes from the Russian classic tale "Tale of a Sleeping Princess" written in verse by Alexander Pushkin.
In the foreground we can see the Evil Queen's servant who gives the poisoned apple to the Dead Princess. In the background the artist has drawn Prince Yelisey who asks the Moon and the Sun where he can find his beloved Dead Princess.
The artist's palette is diverse, but the predominance is given to various shades of green and red tones of tempera paints. Bogachyova enhances details with brilliant gold paint that makes the composition radiate with a tremendous glow.
The scene is framed with gold beads while the box's sides are decorated with a gold scrolling pattern. The box is constructed from papier-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior. A hinge is fastened to the top of the composition, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, Palekh, the title and the year of 2008.
