Title: Tale of Silver Hoof
Artist: Shatokhina Zhenya
Size: 6x8x2.5
Size (inches): 2.5x3x1
Price: $350 $275

Yevgenia (Zhenya) Shatokhina is the author of this traditional Palekh box. It shows a scene from the Russian fairy-tale "Silver Hoof". Light blue tones of tempera paints help the artist to express coldness of a winter day. A sparkle of the snow is achieved with the help of aluminum paint.
The scene is framed with a nice scrolling design while the box's sides are adorned with a similar gold scrolling design completed with silver snowflakes.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid isn't hinged, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, Palekh, and the year of 2005.
