This magnificent box was painted by the talented artist Konovalova Valentina from the village of Palekh. Here she has chosen to depict a scene from the fairy tale, "The Snowmaiden" or "Snegurochka" in Russian.
The box shows the appearance of Snowmaiden to her parents, Old Man Winter and Fairy Spring.
Gold paint is used to detail the characters' costumes, snow-covered hills and trees in a forest. This is work is full very thin details!
The scene is framed with a nice golden dot ornament.The box's sides are decorated with rich gold and silver paint ornament.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged to the top of the composition, and the box rests on wavy legs.
The work is signed with the artist's name and the village of Palekh.
